Hello everybody,
My name is Svetlana and I moved to New Zealand from Bulgaria about ten years ago. Art is my new hobby. Unfortunately there is not much time (work, family, sailing, fishing and gardening – all kiwi business) but I try to be consistent in my art study. Probably the best way to introduce myself is to show what I have done. So I have added to the Gallery a few of my paintings.

 :welcome: Welcome Svetlana!  We look forward to seeing your work. You'll find lots of great people and help here. Dennis and Nolan are great instructors and offer courses at their locations and some on line as well.  Once again, welcome aboard.

I live in West Auckland. It is nice place but far away from Stanmore Bay and Torbay. So I am planning to start with on-line courses for now.

Thank you for such a high appreciation! Actually I am a beginner. My first painting was done two years ago as a present to my husband since he refused any purchased Christmas presents. My work goes slowly by try and error.   So I think it is important to me to learn more.
