I am Sonia Kalčić, an individual with too many passions for one's lifetime, or at least, for the time one has to spend in this life. A significant part of my self, or my soul, is Winter Blossom: a multidisciplinary artist who likes to dabble into various forms of arts and crafts.
I am mainly interested in photography, illustration and graphic design, but I also love to sew costumes and design fashion. I enjoy creating concepts with handmade props and artistic makeup, and modelling in front of the camera is something that brings me creative satiation, from time to time. I also quite like to spend some time writing words.
Being an emotive, sensitive and intuitive individual; my keen affinity for words and sentiments has lured me into creating things that are thoughtful, lyrical and emotionally inspired. I care mostly for staging situations that involve people at a personal level, and sparking a reaction, good or bad, is a true goal of mine. The reflection of my creative intentions is palpable, and there is no room for self-censorship within my art and vision.
I find myself greatly devoted to nature, creativity and knowledge, and that is why I diligently pursue these multiple passions of mine, in order to accomplish my dreams, progress as an independent artist and evolve as unique individual, of imagination and light.
When I am not busy with arts, I like to focus my energies on living a healthy life and helping others in achieving their personal goals as well. As of now, I have been practising yoga for about 10 years, belly dance for six, and I have recently started pushing iron again with my boyfriend. We have indeed embarked ourselves on a fitness transformation journey!
I have always loved being active and I live for creating delicious, fresh, homemade food. Being healthy and balanced, inside and out, is the key and opened door to a happy life. I do believe that one should cultivate good brains, knowledge and wisdom, but the envelope in which you came deserves just as much care and attention as your mind, as they both walk hand in hand.
Speaking of cultivating one's mind... On days that I don't find myself dabbling into arts, crafts, dance, fitness and so on, I just love to get my brains going! I love to read and write, learn about other cultures and perfect my ability at speaking different languages. I have fallen in love with Japan a long while back, and despite having completed a certificate in Japanese language and culture, I have yet to visit the island of the rising sun. It truly is a big dream of mine, and I plan on achieving this goal in a very near, palpable future.
But, without getting ahead of myself... After spending all that time creating with my body and mind, I have to earn a living just like everyone else and to do so, I professionally train dogs. I am a certified dog trainer and canine behaviourist, and I am proficient in all levels of obedience training, behaviour modification, scent detection and personal protection.
Realizing this passion of mine has taken a great deal of time and energy to accomplish, but it was worth the effort in a way that I can now help dogs, and their human companions, in living a more balanced and happy life. Certainly, it was a very eclectic choice for a career, but it somehow joins in perfectly with these other passions of mine, and it allows me to spend all my time working with my own dogs, which is absolutely fantastic!
And in nature we bind... If you stare deep into the woods, you shall find me roaming in company of my beloved companions. After all, peacefulness is a gift from life.
