I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, into the family of a painter and a medical translator. The first image that had an effect on me was a reproduction of the Mona Lisa hanging in the house of a neighbour of my grandparents who lived in a small village on the Black Sea coast.

At the age of thirteen I was accepted to study at the Art School in Sofia where I received intensive training in painting and drawing. At that time I was fascinated by the work of the 17th Century Dutch Masters and Rembrandt. From there I progressed to the Sofia Academy of Fine Arts.

In 1991 I came to Britain to study at the Royal College of Art.

I now live and work in London and have exhibited at the Royal Academy, the Royal College of Art, the gallery at Pentagram Design and the Coningsby Gallery at Pentagram and others.
