I was born in Plovdiv,
Bulgaria and graduated the Stringed Instruments Making departament of
the Technical School for Wood Crafting and
Interior Design in Plovdiv in 1987.
I make violins and violas and repair instruments of the violin family
and their bows.
Also repair classical guitars.
After certain period of working in a violin making factory I found, that
there is nothing creative in exact replication of the old maker's instruments.
Now having my own workshop I am working on improvement of my own
style, combining my personal point of view on the acoustical and aesthetical
aspects and some details inspired by the old italian violin makers.
My instruments are made of spruce and maple from bulgarian mountains,
the blocks and linings of lime and varnished mainly with spirit varnishes.
