Hi, I’m Ivana.
I’ve been passionate about art forever. My fascination with art, photography, painting,
and drawing has made me who I am today.
I’m a professional photographer with more than 15 years
of experience and an art journaling enthusiast.
Also, one of my biggest loves is graphic design.
This wonderful world of design has helped me learn about
composition, color theory, and even psychology.
All these combined into one artistic world is what makes my heart full and joyful.
Artful Haven is all about art journaling. Especially for beginners.
It changed my perspective on the art I create and myself as a person.
I’ve found that with art journaling I can be a drawing artist, a painter,
a doodling artist, or whatever I want.
The freedom to create without rules and limitations is priceless.
Now I am more confident to make art, and call it art.
One of the biggest reasons art journaling is so irresistible is that
you can create without the fear of ruining your art or that someone will judge you.
You are the only one who makes up the rules.
This is me in a nutshell:
Seeing the Aurora Borealis is high on my bucket list.
The idea of the universe mesmerizes me and inspires me.
I could live eating only pancakes.
Serenity is one of my favorite words.
A sucker for snuggling, and even more snuggling.
Goofing around with my husband in our home is priceless to me.
