Her style of works are highly expressive; they vary based on mood. She paints at the moment with an idea all fired up in her mind. She splashes the paint and allows the colors to move her.
Her images are inspired by visions and or dreams. Expressions of obtained knowledge and truth. Composed of emotionally charged gestures, from moody blues to subdued tones that soften the canvas and enjoys working on Raw Canvas. The texture of raw canvas ads to the energetic flow and elusive color. She loves seeing the canvas drink up the paint, like a desert awaiting its oasis.
