“I began painting as very young girl and since then I never stopped… I create in ceramics , paintings and collage. My work explores what I see in my own way. All my life I’ve been interested in art (…) My art is my voice … a powerful interpretation of my deepest thoughts and hidden emotions. I paint abstract styles, mixed medium and collage technique. I cut a lot of paper and make long compositions… (…). Each painting or artwork becomes a new family member… Within each brushstroke time and emotions are forever trapped .”
