She draws her inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through watercolours, acrylics and mixed media.

Her delicately multilayered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and the interplay of light and dark, creating an atmosphere that opens itself up to multiple meanings.

"Art and design is something I’m very passionate about. Use of colour, shape, texture and light defines my style in capturing the personality and emotions of the subject.My inspiration and influence comes from everything I see, feel and experience around me.”
