Nature is her often source of inspiration, as the parallel of her inner life. “I paint intuitively, the whole thing is more about enjoying the process than the result itself. The colour is the prior mean of expression in my works. I love to experiment with layers, combine more techniques in each piece of art and play. Painting is the opportunity to look inside, reconnect with my inner-self. It is my adventure and meditation. I use mainly acrylic and mixed media technique which allow me to explore and play alongside and enjoy this amazing intuitive process.”
Nowadays Katarína lives with her family in Bratislava and she is creating, teaching and lecturing in her studio in Old City of Bratislava. She loves to inspire, guide and help oters to discover and unleash their unique creative voice.
