The sea, in particular, inspired me to connect more deeply with my homeland, Croatia, where I spend most of my free time each year. Through my art, I strive to capture the unique expressions in nature and human emotions that make each person so beautiful and special. I’m committed to empowering women through my work and creating pieces that inspire and uplift people worldwide.

The Artist

I am Croatian. I was born in Bosnia. I started As a Croat of Italian descent, I was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Doboj, where I lived with my family until the beginning of the war and for a portion of the turbulent 1990s. 

Early on, I recognized the strength and resilience of people, especially the women in my life, including my mother, aunt, sister, grandmother, and my wife, who has been a tremendous source of support, assistance, and inspiration.

Since 2014, I’ve been engaging in more serious work and exhibitions, such as Moss St. Paint-in, Sook Fine Arts Show, Sidney Sculpture Walk, Sculpture Splash Esquimalt, and Victoria Gallery show. My works have also been displayed in my solo gallery, Evolve, in Victoria, Canada, and the Tofino Gallery of Contemporary Art in Tofino, BC.
