Biography
She was born in 1978 in Ljubljana. In 2003 she graduated from the High expert school of painting in Ljubljana, and immediately enrolled in a post-graduate programme for painting at the Faculty of fine arts in Belgrade. She now lives and works between Ljubljana and Belgrade. Since 1999 she has been granted a scholarship for talented students from the City of Ljubljana. In the past four years she has had many exhibitions all over Europe.

Exhibition: »Three drops of blood for the bride«
The exhibition illustrates the position of women in society. In some societies marriage represents a breaking-point dividing »a girl from a wife« and as such an important act in life, which brings along many changes.
Traditional rules of behaviour have changed in time yet the essence stays the same. The role of a woman has changed just partially, her sacrifice is still obvious and painful.
