I am IEVA. I like my name.  I went to music school for almost 4 years that I never finished because my goal wasn’t to become a musician or go to college for music. I played in orchestra and sang in a choir. I never attended art school although I started drawing the same minute I could hold a pencil in my hands. I took solitude travels in Europe that were beautiful on their own. When I was in my last year at high school everybody knew I was going to study journalism at college because I had a gift of writing and was making money by writing short stories for a local newspaper. I felt too much pressure so I rebelled and chose psychology. For a long time I wondered if it was the right choice until one day I realized that it made me wiser and more insightful. By a random chance I got to study art, that brought more peace in my life, and here I am writing this blog that brings me closer to writing a book that my friends are impatiently waiting for. I feel like returning to the start point and acknowledging the gift that I was given.

I don’t have any expectations for my readers. Maybe only one –

Don’t be afraid and allow yourself to feel the words; let me take you on my journeys between conscious places and material spaces; enjoy whatever you are feeling; and most importantly, acknowledge your feelings. It will make you smile inside and will bring external peace.

        Yeah! You did it perfectly, it works great. If you ever need any techno help, the best guy I’ve found is at teck line. His link is on my blogroll. I was referred to him by the wordpress team and he is uber patient. I’m a techno retard and he has never once even laughed at my questions. His directions are highly understandable.

        Bon Voyage! and thanks for your very kind words about my artwork. 🙂
