My name is Mia. I am 17 years old. I like cats, old clothes, old photos (polaroid) and older music. I am interested in politics and I would like to become a human rights activist.

I have been painting since my childhood. I used to attend lessons of painting, but I would surely paint also without them. I simply got this, and I have not abandoned the hobby since then. I mostly use the tools with which I can really enjoy my work – pencil, aniline colours and especially oil colours. And because I love old oil figurative paintings, I also try to find inspiration in them. Of course, they do not look perfect, but I like it. I am a spring/summer girl, I hate to do something in winter. I dislike the cold and I prefer staying under a warm blanket than doing anything. Seasons and weather have a big influence on me.

I was selected for this project one month before the beginning of the exhibition. I was really honoured that I got this chance. I did not hesitate and accepted. When I compare my painting to the others, then my work does not look so good visually. I have seen many perfect works at the exhibition in Chomutov, but I think that if somebody is such a big fan of the Beatles as I am, then they can appreciate my painting. And I am glad that I got this chance and could show my creation and interests.
