Where the home is...

I was recently asked "Do you ever go back home?" in reference to former Yugoslavia, specifically Sarajevo, Bosnia (where I was born and raised). I have not been there physically in many years, but visit it in my mind quite often. The answer to the question "Where is home?" is actually quite simple for me. Home is where I live, where my family is, and home happens to be in Edmonton, Canada now. This city is a recent home for our family, and moving here has been a wonderful adventure so far.

My previous homes have shaped who I am today. Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado are all a big part of me, and influences of all these places show in my work.
