“I love painting and drawing faces, because it’s a great way to express universal emotions and soul.”
I’m Juna Biagioni, a mixed media artist & art teacher, and I live with my husband in the beautiful heart of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. As a little girl I loved being creative, making music, drawing and writing stories. Later my focus shifted, but a few years ago I rediscovered my creative source and started a new exciting journey into art.
My main focuses are mixed media, art journaling and monoprinting, but currently I mostly paint and draw faces. I try to capture some kind of ‘soul’ in my work – in an unpolished way. Soul can be soft, tender, and beautiful, but also difficult or raw. I hear from people that they are touched by my work, that they sometimes find peace in it, or that they read all kinds of stories in it. That’s what makes me happy.
Art for me is a means to connect with people, to express my own inner worlds. But I also like to leave enough open space for people to see their own stories and meanings in my work. The greatest gift is when people are somehow touched by my art, because it means that the artwork has its own power, separate from me, which is able to move something in another person. That’s just pure magic.
