My name is Maria Derova, a native of the most creative city in Bulgaria – Plovdiv. Art has been a part of me since I was a child. I graduated in fashion design, but due to coincidences I became a master economist. This, of course, did not stop the artist in me. I paint with different techniques, but I rely mainly on acrylic paints. Recently, my passion has become “Mandalas”, depicted on the basis of a point system. Technique, extremely intoxicating and associated with great precision and patience. I paint both panels and various gifts of ceramics, wood, leather and more. My other passion is painting with acrylic and natural Scandinavian moss. I like to create new things that challenge and make me difficult. For me, art is a way of life.
