Her career in the hospitality industry brought her to work and live in Europe, Asia and finally the US, experiences which enriched her both professionally and as a human being.
While living in the US, she started to combine art and design projects, and after motherhood, she decided to channel all her creativity into painting.
Her art work uses figurative representations in vibrant and intense colors, to find beauty, and express a different array of emotions. Interested about Life and its multiple manifestations in plants, animals, humans or in the microscopic world, her work explores the meaning of feelings, of thinking, and of consciousness in all life around and inside us.
