Between 1991 and 1995 she worked as a fashion designer, managing her own fashion studio and designer line of winter and summer clothing. She has since worked for various hotel chains and institutions around the world – as an independent portrait artist, caricature artist, stage design coordinator, and design planner as well as a coordinator for all artistic projects and themed events for multiple hotel institutions such as RIU Hotels & Resorts in the Dominican Republic, Atlantis Hotel, Paradise Island in The Bahamas, to name a few. Ekaterina also has an earnest passion for teaching and as an art and crafts teacher she has devoted many years to the education of students in various Bahamian government and private schools at all levels from grade one to pre-college. She has proudly led her classes to multiple best achievement awards on a national level several years in a row.


Ekaterina is also proficient in five languages. She enjoys travelling around the world and has made the beautiful Bahamas her final choice of residence. With her endless passion for self-improvement and motivation for overachievement, she has proven herself as a talented and accomplished artist in multiple fields.”


Mrs. Kovatcheva notes, “I have been doing exhibitions for the past 20 years in Bulgaria, [other] international exhibitions, group exhibitions, and solo exhibitions. I had one last year in Old Fort Bay Gallery, and this year, it will be held at Doongalik Studios on Village Road. I really enjoy my work, and I enjoy my work with my students too.”


She added, “I am interested to involve more students into this work and I try to select more [student] work to participate in the local exhibitions. One now is going on in the Central Bank and I am depending on my students at the high school - for all the students that want to participate. I am waiting for the entries for this exhibition right now. I have one, Charisma Roker from grade 10, and I am waiting for more work. I really want to involve my students into art, more exhibitions, and more popularization of their work.”
