About

Creating fine artworks is my way of venting energy and thoughts.
I started creating art seriously during my college years. I was an art student interested in practically everything. Thus, I was able to study a lot of different ways art provides to express ones’ self. I graduated with a degree in photography and a minor in drawing and spent some years working as a photographers’ assistant for various photographers, as well as doing travel photography in between.
I soon realized that commercial photography was not what I could do for the rest of my life. It wasn’t creative enough. Through my many journeys in the world of art, I’ve created art drawings & paintings with pencil, charcoals, oil colors, watercolors, collages, pottery, jewelry, papier-mache, you name it.
My favorite medium is mixed media art collages because I can incorporate small bits of my life & my memories in them…

My favorite medium is mixed media art collages because I can incorporate small bits of my life & my memories in them. But, as so often happens in life, tastes change they evolve along with our personality. So my most recent work was influenced and inspired by Chinese art and its simplicity.
My future thoughts are toying with some 3D wooden panels but that is just a project to work on in my mind & to look forward to for now.
It is so exciting to create beautiful objects I don’t believe that I’ll ever get bored.
I believe that in order to enjoy your creations in their full ability, you have to share them with others who find them beautiful & meaningful too.
That is why I decided to open a shop here in Etsy's community. It's a pleasure for me to see other peoples' work & get to “know” their views on art, life, work. The environment makes me want to work more and create paintings that will make your living spaces beautiful.
