As a visual artist, I use my art to create new worlds. I amgetting inspired by nature scenes and animals. landscapes and mountain views,blooming flowers, butterflies, and birds are just a short list of my natureinspiration sources. My other sources of inspiration are fairytales characters likewitches, fairies, and mermaids.
To create new worlds, I take my sources of inspiration andput them on a surface in the way I see them in the world I create. I cancombine multiple sources of inspiration and place them into one world. My goalis to create a world that will be looking live, colorful, shine a lot ofpositive energy out. I love to see how the worlds I create make people whovisit them happier!
I experiment with multiple colors in my work, and I do notlimit myself to any surface and its size. I paint on canvas, rocks, woodsurfaces, ceramics, glass, and metal. I even create murals on walls and fences.I truly believe that art has no limits!
