Simona gets her inspiration from history, mythology and symbolism. An endless source of energy, giving life to her explorations and constantly feeding them is Bulgarian folklore. Her works are a symbolic fusion between ancient, traditional and contemporary, giving a new life to forgotten rituals and beliefs. Everything is done in an extremely personal and at the same time universal manner, relating to different cultures and backgrounds, not limited to time or space. She captures beauty in a warp of symbols and colours and nothing is what it seems in the vast sea of vibrance. In seek of the fountain of all creation, lying deep within the hidden realms of life, the artist refracts the information into visual knowledge and among infinite number of choices she chooses to paint it.
