Pablo Picasso


Pablo Ruiz y Picasso was born in 1881 and lived 92 years of artistic productiveness, glory, love and recognition.

Most of us know PP as an eccentric painter,but he was so much more. Sculptor, printmaker, ceramist,stage designer,poet and playwright- just to name a few of his graces.But most of all, PP has been a man with strong personality ,self esteem and wisdom that can learn us a lot ,weather we like his work or not.

The reason why I chose this particular artist to work with,is one of the phrases he left in history,amongst many:"I am always doing that I cannot do,in order that I may learn how to do it".And this is exactly how I would describe the way I see my work as an artist.
My clients often ask me if I have rehearsed something we are trying for the very first time and I always say no, because somehow I know that art is going to show me the way.And it does,everytime.

Apart from nail technician,I am a kindergarden school teacher for kids with special needs. Special education is something I am really involved in ,I can handle,I believe in,plus, something I think we all should have a taste of, because it can learn us a lot about life.

Next,I have a dog,Eva, which I really love, she is crazy but she is my companion ,she is with me all the endless hours of working,practising, she is even used to the chemical odors despite she is a dog.

Another strong aspect of my personality is my heritage,I am an offspring of Constantinople grandparent refugees,and this is something obvious in the way I have been raised,talk,cook,love,live.

My work is something very characteristic of me,as it takes way more than 8 hours a day in my mind.I believe than what I do for living and who I am,are pretty much the same thing so far.

Last but not least,this whole project would be half without my signature.My name means Mary of the Flowers, so ,I chose to create an “M” for the pinkie, full of flowers.
