It all started when ...
... i was a little girl. Hiding on our family building attic (Tavan). It was like, old & dusty, Disneyland just for me. Full of old clothes, books, furniture, paintings, shoes, cuttlery, mirrors ... oh such a magnificent Playground it was. Here i started reading, dancing, performing, singing, drawing, in one word - Creating. After school, studying and really trying to have a ''real&steady'' job - i returned to the place where everything started. Became enterpreneur; food stylist, using Tavan as a studio for creating food magazine photos, collaborating with supertalented photographers and writing first Croatian food blog Sjedi&Jedi (Sit&Eat).
That blog was completely my creation AND I've got the opportunity to publish it on a big public platform. Oh how popular it was! That support connected me with amazing, loving & completely affirmative audience (u get what u give!), wings to fly / grow so I've started another project called Mali plac na Tavanu (Little Market on the Loft).
It was a little organic food & natural products market for farmers, creators and people in love with the real food, getting familiar with its source, sharing, tasting, co-creating.
After three years of using Tavan as a platform, every saturday!, it grew so much that it had to move on :). I am in the middle of planning another beautiful project scribbling, writing, planning ... where else then - @Tavan! In the meantime it also became a place for friend's Art School - Art na Tavanu (Art @Tavan)
... creation is limitless & u can start creating anytime & what's most important - anywhere!
Tavan is very inspiring & live example.
