Bio

About Two years ago I decided to dedicate my life to art & illustration completely and to focus on creating my own art, which is about adjusting the reality how I perceive it with my environment and examining and questioning my surrounding how I experience it. Finally I transform my insights and impressions into my artworks as you can see them here. My works are inspired by music and poems, encountering people and travelling to beautiful places, and I hope you will find this poetry and beauty in my artwork. My favourite panting techniques are water colour, crayoning, cyanotyping and ink drawings. One of the main topics I'm focussing on is the diversity of the world of women's feelings. In my paintings and illustrations I figure out the representation of feelings like fear, self-doubts, self-confidence, a feeling of strength and the complete width of feelings regarding love and tenderness, and for all of them I create spaces and expressions.
