Hello, my name is Anastez. I’m the artist, craft maker, photographer. I live and create my art in Mogilev, Belarus. It is mixed media eco friendly art. Floral collages, handmade cards and wedding stuff. I use found natural materials as a medium for my deeply imaginative and often very delicate artworks. To make my collages, I use all sorts of natural and floral materials including fish scales, egg shells, split branches, feather, moss, pebbles, flax and paper and etc. There are no borders in my art. And I am constantly looking for new materials and technology. My work has always been inspired by nature: organic forms, flowers, seasons, land, water, sky. My collages are natural colors, smooth lines, unusual texture, and a process that always changes and grows.
I spent large amounts of time as a child in the company of my teacher, an incredibly talented, hardworking designer, in her studio strewn with flowers, leaves and scraps of interesting natural materials. There is nothing more natural to me than to work with organic material, using it to give new life. I have been learning nature during 7 years since I was a kid, when I spent my days making simple art works in a studio of floral design.
My work is all hand made. Each piece is exquisitely crafted with great love and attention to detail. Whilst pieces are often replicated, no two will ever be the same and that is what makes each one such a treasure. Constantly I spend my time hunting for really unique and special natural materials. Offering such variety means that each day is different and exciting. My art is a continual source of personal development. Creating is what makes me the happiest, and it’s very exciting to know that I can make my living doing what I love.
