I’m Ema Sivac and I’m 18 years old. I’m going to the fourth grade of high school Vič. When I grow up I want to be an artist. I want to live from the art and be an artist. I would love to travel around the world. To experience new things and everything that is related to art. Everything started when my friend asked me to draw something on his jeans jacket. We went to the coffee and we talked about jacket design. He brought me his jacket and I painted it. I put the photo of his jacket on Instagram, and I got an explosion of comments and inquiries. They asked me if I can paint their jackets, shirts, pullovers. I love doing it. The process starts with an idea, with a sketch, that I can see how it will look like, because of the seams, the pockets on the jacket and etc. I try different colors to see how it will look like on jeans, then I draw the sketch on jeans, and I start painting. The best thing about drawing on the clothes is your uniqueness. You can modife your clothes to yourself, to your character. When I told my parents I wanted to study arts and be a painter, Mamma told me to pick up my things and to go away if I will insist on that idea. because she won’t support me. Of course, I’ve been sad after this words, but I convince them, and they realized that I wanted to be a painter, that I’m happy and good at it. Now they support me 100% and help me to realize my dream. I’m dreaming of attending the Academy in Amsterdam. I’ve applied and now I’m waiting for a results. If all goes well I will study in Amsterdam. I’m so excited about it. I appreciate my friends a lot, I can’t imagine a day without them. They make me happy and I’m the happiest person when I’m with them. They support and help me. When I know they are there for me. These are my real friends. I enjoy being with them. In life, it’s most important to have the right people around you, with good energy and vibration, that you feel and draw that positive energy in your life. You have to surround yourself with people who you love and who loves you. It’s sound like a cliche, but to be kind is one of
the most desirable thing in our life. Quote, that describes me is “If it’s meant to be it will be”. We are burdened with events from the past as well as with events that will happen in the future. My opinion is if something is destined to happen it will happen. And I just need to be patient, wait for that moment and don’t think too much about it. I just want to be happy and satisfied with my life, myself, and with the art that expresses me. I just want to be satisfied with my work, drawings, and designs. And that’s it. If I needed to describe myself in three words it will be creative, ambitious and lazy. Lazy in a sense that I’m postponing the work for the last minute. I would love to get rid of that bad habit. If I could wish one thing that will improve our lives, that people watch their lives and their business, they need to be more tolerant and open-minded. Because people are judging others without any rights. People are putting their nose where they shouldn’t. They need to be better, open-minded and tolerant. My thing is textile design. This is something I enjoy doing it, it makes me happy. As well as all the opportunities I will get from it.
