She is inspired by Life itself, also its spiritual dimension, but also travels, people in their true beauty, the diversity and beauty of nature, and the potential of old, often unnecessary objects - such as the patina on a brass candlestick, old postcards, cards, books and materials. with similar structures or patterns. She draws inspiration from everything that touches her deeply.
The colors are like music, like the notes with which the Soul expresses its most beautiful melody. When I paint, I am happy, it is a special state of mind, joy of soul, state of grace.
And, the very act of painting is a prayer for me.
My art is my life, my friend, my beloved, my love and joy. It is everything to me because it is the voice and creation of my Soul. The art I create is sharing all my wonderful values and feelings with the world, with people, and the constant happiness in which I abide when I paint. This is my mission
I use traditional materials, acrylic paint, charcoal, pastels, ink. I experiment with them to find what suprising final effect can be achieved. I love structures and I often create them, I am fascinated by the surprising effects and possibilities they offer. It's a great fun adventure.
My proces involves working on several pieces at the time to create dialogue between them, moving from one to another allows me develop the ideas and pushing the boundries.
My goal is to inspire those, who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unusual.
