My name is Alla Jönsson Janevska. I am 32 years old, born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, resident in Sweden since 2000. My interest for art sarated at an early age, and my formal artistic training began early. After 4 years at an art school, I've had private lessons in painting and graphics over a year's time. I have a bachelor's degree in digital design; at the present I am working as a graphic designer.
"I like to imagine a whole story behind a character or a motive, but when I start painting, there comes moments when any considerations, designs and worries beyond the labour itself: the colour, the paper and the brush in my hand, become diminished and somehow less important. That is what an artist calls happiness."
