“Straight ahead of him, nobody can go very far . . .”
Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince
Welcome and thanks much for stopping by. Since I was a little girl I loved drawing. The truth is though that there were other things I loved equally, such as playing with building blocks or making clothes for my dolls. And it is also a fact that I never dreamed of being ‘a painter’ or ‘an artist’ as a kid. Instead, I wanted to be a bus driver, a dancer or a fashion designer. But my parents would tell you that drawing was what I did most. So perhaps that is why art followed me through my life.
There was the time in my early twenties when I dived into an oil painting course. But then the circumstances did not allow to pursue painting further and I thought that it was the way it was meant to be. So I put my pencils, brushes, papers, and paints away.
Many things happened between that moment and now. I have worked in education, digital marketing, and project management. Despite constantly learning new things and progressing in my career, I felt that there was something substantial missing in my life. That was when I realised that my love for art, for painting, had been there with me all that time and that I didn’t want to ignore it anymore. Now I am painting, drawing and doing photography. I work with oil, acrylic, gouache, watercolour and mixed media. I keep learning new things and new ideas keep coming to me about what to paint and what projects to start.
If you would like to work with me, buy a piece of art, or commission a specific work of art don’t hesitate to contact me. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Have a beautiful day,
I work closely with ARTUARE, a wonderful on-line gallerist.
In 2014 I had my first solo show. It was an amazing evening thanks to Luci, the founder of ARTUARE who secured the space and organised the exhibition, and to my older son Dan who helped with installation and took beautiful photos of the event.
