I am a self taught dreamer and artist. To dream is my path and to paint is my dream. Painting fulfills me. The ritual of preparing my materials, the working table, the music, everything about it makes me happy. Opening the pigment jars, feeling the specific scent of the resin (the medium I paint with), observing the mediums interacting and changing under fire, the peaceful restlessness I feel during the process, the perpetual element of surprise, everything is pure joy for me. Lack of control is not my strong suit, but in the painting process things are different. The resin (also known as liquid glass) has a mind of its own and I learn to mindfully let go every time I paint. I allow those liquid color induced emotions I feel to drive me and take lead of my hands and at the end of the process, its just music and bliss. Resin flowing on the painting surface is like a butterfly unfolding its wings for the very first time, overwhelming beauty and color reveal uniquely surprising patterns ready to fill the yearning eyes and souls. I get to create my own “pupas” and watch them emerge into beautiful “butterflies” on the painting surface. I love this painting style because it cannot be reproduced, repeated, recreated, every painting obtained through this technique happens only once in an infinity of attempts. In a way, these paintings are like us humans: one of a kind, for eternity. Isn’t that amazing?
I am a full time artist selling my paintings all over the world. My pieces are part of private collections all over USA, South America, Asia, and all over Europe.
I am most active on Instagram, where collectors, admirers and friends can follow my work and ongoing projects.
My inspiration is always nature's force, balance, perfection in purpose and beauty, it can be a place I travelled or sailed to or just the breeze or a feeling while floating on our a boat docked in a turkish marina or just on anchor nearby a greek taverna on a remote tiny island in the Mediterranean or Aegean Sea. It can be this artist as a little girl reading "The count of Monte Christo" trying to escape her cold tiny grey communist bedroom by daydreaming and travelling to exotic warm places with gold sand beaches and teal clear water oceans and seas.
Regardless the place or sensation that triggers me to paint, I always seek and aim for same thing: I want the viewer to feel warmth, solace, calm, inner peace, I want them to feel the warm waters touching their feet and that turquoise-teal-gold perfect color ratio fill their hungry for beauty eyes and soul.
So if you love the ocean, walks on a breezy beach or you can describe yourself as an ocean lover, my art can and will bring you joy and closer to that salty sunny beach of your dreams.
