My name is Katarina Golianová and I was born in Slovakia. At the age of 20, I moved to Greece. I've been living here for 20 years and life has brought me so much that I'm going to return home. It is a new beginning, so I started to paint again. I painted when I was young, I made sketches, I mostly drew various faces from photos or magazines with a pencil, Wold Disney characters. I always enjoyed drawing and painting very much. I got lost in everyday reality for many years (school, duties, work), but I started to paint again at the age of 34.
First, I started with photography, which I never quit, then making earrings and necklaces from stained glass, some leather-work, and various decorative items, but the artist in me yelled for more. So, I enrolled in painting school and started painting with devotion. I specially love the Baroque era, and Van Gogh paintings dominated my early artwork. My teacher, encouraged me even more to believe my talents and abilities. At the same tame, I also started ceramics lessons. Another big passion of mine. To create something from clay is magic. I have devoted myself to ceramics for 4 years and I have been really enjoying it.
Art opened a whole new world for me. From the moment I started painting, I began to notice everything around me, plants, trees, the sky, clouds like waves on the sea, how the sea shines when reflecting the sun. Everything fascinates me so much, everything is so beautiful and perfect. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. When I paint and get the feeling that time stops, it's just me and my creation, it's a wonderful feeling, and I forget everything else. It’s just the canvas I have in front of me, lost in creation, in another reality, feeling blissful.
I feel art in my blood, I love to dance, quite well to, and I also sing. In the near future I would like to study sculpture and take violin classes. My dream is to make a name for myself in art.
I would like to thank my family and my teachers for believing in me and supporting me, even when I had lost faith.
I sell original paintings, photos, and other art items so I can continue to paint and create. If you like my work, please support me. With love Katka.
