=====================================================

Sanda Vlasic was born in 1956 and grew up in Radovljica, Slovenia. After graduating in English and German languages at the University of Ljubljana, she moved to Zagreb where she taught English and German in secondary schools. From 1994 she worked at the Australian Embassy in Vienna, and from 2000 at the Australian High Commission in London. Since 2014 she has been living in Vela Luka.

Sanda liked painting from a young age, but due to many obligations it has remained only a wish. She encountered watercolour already in elementary school and thanks to an art teacher, who himself worked in watercolour, was inspired to begin painting herself.

During her stay in London in 2004, she started a course in the basics of watercolour and thus making her wish come true. With the beginning of learning and painting in watercolour she quickly realized that the technique of watercolour is not simple and it requires a lot of learning and practice, but that the final result can provide great satisfaction. Thanks to the popularity of watercolour painting in England, she had plenty of opportunities to visit exhibitions, as well as a large selection of quality stationery, literature and courses.

In 2006 she joined a watercolour course, organised by a self-taught painter in her home, garden or neighbouring nature. She attended the courses for more than two years and has gained a lot of practical and useful advice. She could then use the knowledge gained in the courses when she was painting herself. And from then on a collection has started which you are able to see in this exhibition.

Her motives are landscapes of the areas where she lived and travelled. In addition to the landscapes, her motives are flowers from the fields and from the courtyards.

So far she took part in two local charity exhibitions in England, and in 2015 she participated in the exhibition “Love and Island” in Vela Luka.

============================

Sanda Vlašić je rođena 1956. i odrasla je u Radovljici. Nakon što je diplomirala engleski i njemački jezik na Sveučilištu u Ljubljani, preselila se u Zagreb gdje je predavala engleski i njemački jezik u srednjim školama. Od 1994. radila je u Australskom veleposlanstvu u Beču, a od 2000. u Australskom veleposlanstvu u Londonu. Od 2014. živi u Veloj Luci.

Slikanje je privlačilo od mladih dana, ali zbog puno obaveza ono je zadugo ostalo samo želja. S akvarelom se srela već u osnovnoj školi i zahvaljujući učitelju crtanja, koji je i sam radio u tehnici akvarela, potaklo ju je da i sama počne stvarati.

Za vrijeme boravka u Londonu 2004. krenula je na tečaj o osnovama akvarela i time počela ostvarivati svoju davnu želju. S počecima učenja i crtanja u akvarelu brzo je shvatila da tehnika akvarela nije jednostavna i da zahtjeva puno učenja i vježbanja, ali da konačni rezultat može pružiti veliko zadovoljstvo. Zahvaljujući popularnosti slikanja u tehnici akvarela u Engleskoj, imala je dosta mogućnosti za posjete izložbama, a i veliki izbor kvalitetnog pribora, literature i tečajeva.

2006. pridružila se tečajevima akvarela, koja je organizirala samouka slikarica u svom domu, vrtu ili obljižnjoj prirodi. Tečajeve je posjećivala više od dvije godine i dobila je puno praktičnih i korisnih savjeta. Znanje stečeno na tečajevima puno joj je koristilo kod samostalnog slikanja. Od tada se počela stvarati zbirka koju imate priliku vidjeti na ovoj izložbi.

Motivi su joj krajolici iz okruženja i s putovanja. Pored krajolika, motivi su joj i poljsko i vrtno cvijeće. Do sada je sudjelovala na dvije lokalne dobrotvorne izložbe u Engleskoj, a 2015. sudjelovala je na skupnoj izložbi „Ljubav i otok” u Veloj Luci.
