“Nothing is as perfect and beautiful as nature. I have always been fascinated by harmony and beauty of nature. To study nature was always a source of great pleasure for me.
My passion for nature is reflected in my painting, and much of my imagery I found just by opening my door, outside in the ever-changing landscape and in the garden.
Inspired by nature I want the viewer to be able to feel like they are actually there. I want the viewer to fill like me every time they look at one of my paintings".
Her Love of Art came at an early age. The inspiration of nature; landscapes, waterscapes and florals became the themes of her paintings. As an intuitive painter, she finds beauty in her surroundings and enjoys painting what inspires her using oils to portray that beauty.
