    Love of drawing

    As a child, I was mesmerized by the world of ink and paper, which turned into a lifelong passion for art. As an eternal lover of stories, it is important for me to have a background story to the art I am creating.

    Whether I'm playing violin, guitar or piano, I use melody and dynamics to tell stories.

    I deeply love science. Seeing nature through science-coloured glasses gives me a profound joy. When it is dark outside and I am not in the midst of an ink-and-paper adventure, I am most probably playing with my telescopes, catching starlight.

    I feel at home in nature, looking for small hidden surprises and geological clues while hiking along trails.

    All these different interests and venues fuel and inspire my art.

    I am happiest when I am travelling and experiencing the world up close.

    My camera and I are inseparable. I use it for journalling and for creativity, capturing the abundance of colour and movement around me.

    I have been painting ever since I was a child. I have always loved watercolour, but I also let the subject of the painting dictate the media. I use oil, oil pastel, ink and markers as well.

    I write about my creative and photographic travel adventures at www.whimsandfancies.com
