All of my creations are to be found online.
Dezignation.com for the graphic, web and more commercial design and the latest – e-store rannka.com. Rannka was actually inspired and named after my grandma, an extraordinary women who raised me back home and who influenced much of my personality while growing up.
I like seeing other people’s creations, understanding what their topics are about, how they presented the idea, what medium did they use and so on. It makes me think of my own ideas in a different way and also it’s kind of nice to ‘steal’ a part of that drive and adrenalin other artists experienced while creating. It reminds me of how much I love doing what I’m doing and it gives me wings for another project in line. Back at the day you’d have to go to museums and art shows to stay on top what’s happening. Today, everything is a click away, so I always try to find the time to be in touch with the arts and design department.
But what inspires me above all is my family. I was born lucky to be put in hands of my parents who always supported me and my love towards art. I crossed half a world to get my education and to be where I am right now. It wasn’t the easy time for a girl coming from eastern Europe into a western world, and if it weren’t for them I would not have made it. So they are my biggest inspiration – my mom and dad.
My second biggest inspiration is the rest of humanity (‘I am a fan of men’), a true, naked honesty of who and how we are; with all of our fears and imperfections, with all our desires and dreams, emotions, and pride and jealousy, helping hand and kind hearts – all that, with no masks and no make up to cover it up. To really open up and take no embarrassment in anything that we humans are about. That is what awes me really, an ability to show our true nature for whatever that might be. And so when I create, if it comes truthfully is a success. If I however try too hard and think of how cool it should look like I then create some sort of a wannabe. But when it happens that I blush to myself on how honest and deep I go, I then deliver a piece I am proud of. And that is what all of the original pieces are about – our true self. As then, one often recognizes and correlates with that same feeling of fear or a bliss and so we connect and that’s what art is supposed to be about.
