Artistic backgroundPetya Stoeva is a Gloucestershire based artist, whose eye-catching work is exhibited at local galleries as well as cafes; she feels that people should be able to enjoy art wherever they are. Petya works from her home studio and successfully juggles a job, family life and painting. Her creativity draws from life experiences, such as family and relationships, observations of creatures and nature, and perceived notions and ideas.
Painting is a lifelong passion which finally burst out onto canvases in 2019. Petya uses variety of media including oil and acrylic, and often uses extra materials for embedding, in order to produce depth and texture; thus creating one-off pieces of original art (a certificate of authenticity is sent with every artwork). Some of her work is soft, subtle and modest, while other pieces are complex, deep and provoking.
When painting, Petya feels most attuned to the magic that is art. For her, blending paints is like composing a tune, and the finished painting is a harmonious symphony; one that takes the observer through moments of peace and drama.
