As a child, she first began drawing in the studio of her father, a renowned artist and designer. It was there that she found her skills and her interests in this study flourished. The cultural turmoil of her homeland influenced her greatly and she began to truly understand the meaning of expression through drawing and painting.
In 1992, Mindeli enrolled in the Tbillisi State Academy of Fine Arts where she studied art history and fine art. The presence of other creative minds encouraged her desire to express herself further. The art world had finally embraced her and she yearned for cultural stimulus to liberate her talent.
She graduate in 1997 and moved to America to further her horizons.
Her new-found freedom of expression and her love of nature have been melded together to create her intricate floral designs. Mindeli looks forward to exploring her artistic talents and developing new and exciting images. She plans someday to return to her homeland to pay her respects to the environment from whence her gift originated.
