“Color possesses me. I don’t have to pursue it.

It will possess me always, I know it.”

Paul Klee

Says Mileva, “I can associate with Paul Klee in the way that I see the surrounding world. Raised in a family with mother-sculptor and father-painter, I have always been intrigued by different art forms. Shapes, volumes and colors fascinate me, and quite often I am also looking for similar expression in the my architectural and interior projects.”
