Ela Stefanac • Cat Morley

This week I get to know my subscriber Ela Štefanac, a Croatian art student.

Ela is a student at the Academy of Applied Arts in Požega, Croatia. Her favourite book is Nurtured by Love by Shinichi Suzuki, her hero is Peter Pan and her favourite colours are turquoise, petrol blue and green.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was younger I wanted to be painter, teacher, treasurer and ballerina. Now I want to be an independent, happy handmader. I want to live from my crafts and I want to teach other people how to make things.

Where should we visit if we come to your town?

I live in small town and there aren’t so many things you can see except beautiful nature. But if you come to Croatia you must see the Adriatic sea..

Where do you look for inspiration?

I look for inspiration on the internet, in other peaces of art and artist biographys and in other cultures and history.

"Do what you love, love what you do and believe in yourself"

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Do what you love, love what you do and believe in yourself.

What would your three wishes be?

I want to have a good life, I want to be happy and do things that I love.

You can find handmade jewellery and accessories made by Ela at E la boho on Facebook.
