Watercolor Artist and Teacher Lifestyle
I am a professional watercolor artist travelling the world non-stop and hosting watercolor workshops. New country every 3 months.
I am a professional watercolor artist travelling the world non-stop and hosting watercolor workshops. New country every 3 months.

I am a professional watercolor artist, full-time traveler and salsa dancer. I travel the world non-stop since 2015, visited more than 20 countries and lived in more than 7 countries.

 Every country is a source of inspiration for my art and also a great opportunity to organize watercolor workshops around the world. I am constantly learning & improving my level, also regularly take workshops from inspiring artists worldwide. 

My watercolor style is realistic but I do love experimenting with materials and styles. Style of teaching: Foundations of watercolor is very important. I don't like "play with paints and see what's up" because it leads nowhere. I love to work with people who want to actually understand watercolor as medium and it works, learn the basics, grow and improve the skill. I always provide a strong theory with practical tasks also keeping it easy, slow and fun. I mean, it is still art ;)


 Apart from online courses I am happy to offer private consulting on watercolor skills. From my experience 3 hours of one-on-one class give much stronger foundation in watercolor than any group-class-course and allows a person to move forward by him/herself. Private classes are tailored exclusively for your level, your needs, wants and expectations. That's why together we can achieve the best result in much shorter time ;) 

During that time I: 

- Was group-exhibited in Vietnam 

- Won international watercolor competition 

- Teach watercolor group classes and private master classes around the world 

- Was regularly organizing Art & Coffee events for artists in Chiang Mai, Thailand 

- Was hosting weekly watercolor workshops in Thailand during a year 

- Developed and hosted Crash Course (watercolor month-long intensive course) in Thailand 

- Sell artworks (commercial, private commissions) and prints I am also a founder of YanaTravelArt (personal brand), co-founder of Learn Watercolors Academy (online educational platform for watercolor enthusiasts) and Watercolor Travelers (blog about everything watercolor).
