Relm is an oil painter and amateur sculptor born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and raised in NYC. Her work ranges from erotic dream-like and desolate settings to unique twists on basic portraiture. The beings she creates are innocent outcasts, exiled into their fairytale worlds. Every piece is a small glimpse into their destitute lives. Behind each set of doe eyes and pouty lips, there is a background full of diverse emotions and individual experiences to connect to.
Her upbringing and movement from one extreme setting to another helped fuel her need for constant change in her work. She started her artistic journey in NYC but took great influence from her Balkan/Bosnian background as well as her few years of living in Germany and travels through Europe as a young teen. Her work also draws from her passion for history and recreating worlds that have already existed. She now creates out of her home in Toronto, Canada.
