Artist statement

Have you visited the About me section? It-s not a special one, but I know it is special to me. My story resembles any other person who grew up away from what she wanted to be and do in life. You will find here some of my recent work. I will be uploading more work as time goes by and find time to do it. I have three little children, and my time is little and precious. I started a blog back in 2011 to record my progress as an artist. I created works of ladies with big hairdos which I called Fabulous Poufs.

The illustration you see above was my first drawing when I started this blog.

What my work means to me …

Beautiful, feminine, dreamy landscapes on top of ladies heads.

It means that every person has a special creative force within and it shouldn’t be hidden, but let it grow free as bold statements for everybody to see.

I’m inspired by brilliant colours the form the lines and the little accidents that form in between.

My work represents the desire to strive to grow beautiful to live fully to honour your past and present.

What inspires me…

I am inspired by women’s lives, stories and achievements, nature, female power, female beauty. I was a very dreamy child, so all the fantasy movies from the eighties up to LOTR movies I was a big fan. I love the modern masters, the art brut, the bold and figurative paintings of the late 1800s. Ensor, Beardsley…

What I use…

I use Winsor and Newton Cotman Plus watercolours, Artist's Loft Watercolour Pan 36 Pack, Kuretake watercolor, Winsor and Newton inks, Staedler pens, Arches Cold pressed watercolour pad, Canson Watercolour pads and Moleskin sketchbooks.

How I create…

For the time being, I do not have enough time to start a proper research and art process to do my work. So I spend those few hour I currently have at nighttime to engage right directly into the canvas, without thinking too much on what I want to do… I breathe and pause and I just let myself go... 


Who I paint for…

I draw for women who want to have something beautiful in their homes and for people who are interested in focus on the detail and trails of colour. because we have been silenced because we work everyday and we are mins and we get tired and yet we find these beautiful moments to give in and to stop and create I am inspired by the little moments I honour my 

I think and without knowing my great inspiration is my mother. I grew up admiring her beauty 

I like the idea that I’m just another regular mum painting. I am fine with that.


I regard these ladies and her hairdos as the creative soul that sleeps within us and once it is found and unleashed, it cannot be hidden anymore, as it bursts, rolls and blooms intricately turning into a Fabulous Pouf.
