Old photos

So I was checking old photo albums, looking for pictures I could use for my mom’s birthday present.

I ended with some more ideas for drawings and thoughts about parenthood, childhood, memories.

I’ve always imagined that a person is adult, when they stop thinking what mother would say about them. For some time now my attitude towards my parents has changed a lot.
I used to have many claims about their behaviour, for a long time I was hurt, remembering what they did wrong. After years of thoughts and work, forgiveness day has come. They didn’t ask for it, it just happened. Not in words, just in my mind, but I felt really relieved.

I’ve learned to see them not as my guardians, but as people that in my age had 3 children. When I stopped awaitening parenting care from them, I finally felt like an adult person.
When you separate all this expectations of a child, it leaves just two people, who did mistakes and had their bad sides. Like I do and like I have.
As an adult I gave my inner child what it needed. So it left me with a peace.

Postcards

I present you some sketches that are very personal.

I like to remind myself vacations, nice weekends, time spent on the beach or in restaurant, by making this drawings. This is me and my girl.
For me it’s a form of a postcard, that stays with me years after trip and when I’m looking at it I feel summer, sand, wind, heat, taste of food and sound of music.

A little world with what’s important.

It’s time to say hello

A few words about me.

I’m interior designer by day and I’m drawing, painting etc.. by other day. In fact almost every day 😉

Usually it looks like this: I wake up, have some yoga excercises (for my bad backbone), then a cup of coffee with some music in my headphones.
Then the process of drawing starts. 
I usually draw things that somehow I feel passionate about. But sometimes these are dreams, or something that inspired me: a photo, movie or a book.

I hope you’ll enjoy this “blogish” thing I’m running.
