“I love my work”

Rumyana Stoyanova - woodcarver at Samovodska Charshia

I graduated the High school of applied arts in Troyan. I’ve been following this trade since 1987. I started from curiosity and interest but with my long-term practice I’ve become perfect.
I’ve got a son, who is 10 years old and who loves painting but I will teach him my craft if only he is interested in it.
I spend my whole day in the studio, I work 10 to 12 hours a day. Sometimes more.
I love all my works. After a continuous work my back and my hands hurt me but when I finally take a look at what I’ve created I forget the pain.
I would wish the young people to stay here and to work for their city. Let’s preserve the monuments of culture for they are our legacy and our future!
