Did you always know that you would be an artist?
I’ve always wanted to be involved with art. There was a time when I was not sure whether it should be applied arts or fine arts, but now I know exactly what I want to do namely, the fine arts.
Where did your involvement in art stem from?
I graduated from university with a degree in “Engineering Design.” After the I got married and gave birth to my daughter, because I had to stop work for some time, I started painting more seriously and exhibiting my art in various galleries. That’s when painting became my permanent job.
Where do you get your inspirations from?
I draw inspiration from different places. Sometimes from nature, from music or just an element or form impresses me and in my imagination a whole picture is formed from it.
And that is why I have pictures with so many different themes.
What artists past and present are you influenced by or inspired by?
I draw my inspiration from many artists, some of which are quite known, while others not yet. And sometimes I even get inspiration from my daughters little drawings. That is why I don’t mention specific names.
How do you start a painting?
Well, let’s say that much depends on what it is that I will be painting. For example if it is landscapes then I can be quite spontaneous. Whereas with portraits I like to sketch them first.
