Roza Dzhakova is a Bulgarian artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. She has been attracted to the art since her childhood, she followed painting lessons from an early age. Later in her life studied fine arts for a master’s degree. The last couple of years she has been working as a freelancer: making paintings, murals, working on commissions and giving painting lessons.
People and the environment around her are her sources of inspiration. She believes that people and the environment are in a continuous process of development and have great influence on each other.
