About this itemCustom framed art that takes you away to the canals of Venice, Italy.
Albena Hristova grew up in the presence of art. “I never thought I could be anything else but an artist. It was my destiny. I think of myself as an artist by birth.”
Albena’s first mentor was her mother, the leading restorer of the Bulgarian National Gallery in Sofia. Albena spent countless hours during her childhood observing her mother at work. She recognized her own passion for art and began formal training in high school. Afterward, she attended the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia and received a Masters Degree in mural painting.
Albena lives in California with her husband Max and their teenage son. Her studio occupies the two sunniest rooms, where Albena paints daily in the company of her dog Sharo. Travel is an important part of her creative process, and whenever Albena and her family can they pack up and roam through cities absorbing the architecture, shops and museums.
