Welcome to my painted world!
My name is Anelia Pashova or APASH.

The nickname APASH , which comes from the first letters of my name, has another meaning. Apaches, known as thieves and robbers, are also, and differently, people outside the system.

I grew up with a love for classical art. I love the pencil and brush and can’t replace that feeling with a tablet or computer. Digital is not my medium, I prefer the lines to remain unadulteratedly alive and real!

I graduated from the National Academy of Art with an MA in Illustration. I am a member of the “Society of Animalists, Florists and Scientific Illustrators” / DAFNI /. At the moment I’m a freelance artist and I have as a faithful companion a black dog, my shadow. She has become my inspiration, found her way into my drawings and quite naturally has become a logo of my work.

My illustrations are full with all kinds of animals, however, dogs hold a special place in my heart.
