Tonka, oil painting by Simona Ruscheva

Self-taught or art school?

I graduated Fine Art Painting at St. Cyril and St. Methodius University of Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. 

Having the academic training has really nurtured my love for figurative painting, and working predominantly in oil also has its roots at my school years. I believe this experience gave me a really good base as it was 4 years of different experiments and practising every day, which I consider fundamental. 

I have also learned a lot from my colleagues and formed long-lasting friendships. I can definitely say going to art school was a moment in my life that I am especially grateful for.
