Following a series of private art courses, the passion of her alter-ego took over and she consumed herself in perfecting a very personal and delicate touch to hyper-realistic painting techniques. Her closeness and deep feelings for nature in its everyday glory inspired her to create wonderfully bright and evocative paintings.

Her favourite subjects are over-sized flowers of all kinds with details of dew drops; they are painted on extra-large canvases and reflect the bright colours that nature has to offer while showcasing the fragility and soft beauty of flowers in full bloom. The spectator feels overwhelmed by the vastness of the plant and one can almost imagine being a tiny bee on those wonderful petals. These elements are arranged to please the eye as well as humble the spectator in the beauty and vastness of nature in all its glory.
