THE STORY / PRODAVAČICA MAŠTE

I'm an illustrator and fine artist focused on designing everything.

Proudly bord and bred in Belgrade, Serbia in 1982.
A mixture of Serbian, Hungarian and Macedonian blood.

My professional career began in 2006 after my studies completed at the graphic design department at the Belgrade Polytechnic. After a few years in graphic design, I continue to explore other creative fields, including photography, digital drawing and painting, and eventually fine art.

At a young age I developed a love for painting and drawing,
and have been honing my craft ever since.

Artistic background

Realism, colors and people

My focus has always been on drawing and painting people and telling a story. The graphic design gave me a brother perspective on collaborating with clients, combining different skills (software, sketching, photography, typography, and more) and creating a visual identity.

Right after graduation, I started working in a marketing agency directly with clients. My love for travelling led me to work and travel the world as a photographer. Finally, I started learning more about traditional atelier drawing and painting. Now I combine it all with a strong emphasis on design.

No matter if I do graphic design, storytelling through illustration work, or just an oil painting while designing a composition. Design and a message are the base of all my work.
