•Influenced in her childhood by the big masters from Vermeer to Turner and the Impressionist of the 20s century painting in Provence, she especially felt attraction to the abstract expressionism from Rothko to Jackson Pollock paintings, and to Gerhard Richter’s new vision of painting from photography.
•Develops her own work around childhood Memory - her BA thesis subject matter - and a constant inner search of meditation and spirituality. Zao wou-Ki is one of her pictorial references.
•Inspiration comes from the nature, the sea and the music . She paints listening to music and loves classical music especially Rimsky- Korsakoff but is also a great fan of Pink Floyds, Genesis, Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis, all original music pieces without boundaries to style.
In her process she always oscillates between control and spontaneous pouring painting, between abstraction and figurative references to nature.
