Biography

Jordana Kuncheva
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
 ”I graduated “Iconography” at National Art School, Sliven, Bulgaria and “Mural painting” at National Academy of Art, Sofia, Bulgaria. Currently I’m completing my PhD dissertation in National Academy of Art, Sofia with research in “Theory and structure of the orthodox ornament”.  Meanwhile I’m working in the field of still life and orthodox icons. My permanent interest and clear affinity in orthodox art is developed during my education, both school and academy, and forms the professional direction of my art. I’m researching, designing and performing icons, mural paintings and ornamental compositions in the interior and exterior.”

    Hi!
    Elka Dencheva sent me this URL. Simply wanted to leave a small comment, saying that I like the abstract stories in your murals, and the serenity in your icons. Not that I am involved in art in any way… I only like to draw with oil pastels- I love their colours.
    Good luck, have fun with your work!
    Pepijn
