Kalina Kuzmanova

"It all started when I was in the kindergarten, 6 years old. The teacher told us that’s there is an art competition and since I like drawing pink ponies and such, I told my mother that I wanted to go. She was like “Yeah, yeah, okay”, not believing me that I was serious and thinking I would forget. However, I did not forget, and she took me to the competition. I drew a tree with some strange looking animals. When we went to the awarding my mother did not expect anything, she was not even with a phone in her hand, ready to take photos. At some point they said my name. Somehow, I won 3rd place. That’s how it all started. After this competition I started going to drawing lessons and attending school workshops. Then with the years I decided that I want to study something art related. So here I am now studying Graphic Design, creating logos, print design, compositions and sculptures, planning to continue my education with Game Design or Industrial Design."
