i was born and raised in serbia where i earned a BA in english literature and a BA in economics. in 1989 i moved to toronto, canada and a few years later, i graduated with honors from the international academy of design and technology /interior design program.

interior design gave me a great opportunity to keep an open mind, experiment freely and explore ideas and new possibilities in design. having spent successful years in the interior design field, I took several classes in metalsmithing at george brown college /jewelry arts program, where my first collection, the circles, was born.

people often ask me, what's in a name 'smart'?
well...why don't you find out for yourself?

artist's statement:

'simplicity is the ultimate sophistication'
 leonardo da vinci
  • '...people are afraid of simplicity which often assumes to be dull and boring with absence of complex thought... something elitist, entropic, authoritarian in sterile order...but the essence of simplicity is about the minor and the hidden, the tentative and the ephemeral: things so subtle and evanescent they are invisible to vulgar eyes...'

  • '...the concept of my design expresses my desire to be aggressive yet elegant, androgynous yet powerful, provocative yet minimalistic ,ostensibly slick and balanced with clean lines as a result and experience of my lifelong training and expertise in interior design...'

  • '... in my work I seek and explore ways which my art will evoke and raise communication between wearer and design on a personal level...'
