Bio

For the most part of my career as an artist my focus has been on creating watercolour illustrations inspired by history, fairytales and my travels around the world. I had the pleasure to work as an air hostess for six years in the Middle East and since then I have made several colourful bodies of art work depicting people in historical and modern contexts. When I was painting my watercolour paintings, I was going through a very prim and proper state of life which affected my technique. Now that I am over and done with that, my new technique is more expressive, even if the subject matter hasn't changed. In this new project I am experimenting with Cubism and I give you moments from my day to day life. Through my art I want to celebrate people and capture stories, in the most brightest, most colourful way possible.
