Everything in life is art, everything in life is made of love and faith.
And if you don’t love, don’t feel and don’t have faith you cannot be connected with art.
So make your art the window to your soul.

My Profile

I started painting and drawing when I was a little girl. I have always had a passion for abstract art, but I got discouraged when some people said I would not get anywhere as an artist. That was when I gave up on it. It was a really hard decision because I used to put a lot of effort and tried to synthesise all my feelings in every painting I created.
This little mystery box called life had some other surprises for me though.
A few years ago I found out I had a very serious health condition and if I didn’t fight it, it could cost my life.
I started drawing again and was trying to express all my feelings in every line I drew. But unfortunately, due to the treatment I began to shake and I was not able to draw straight lines anymore.
However, I did not give up because I knew that love and faith can work miracles, and all my love for my son and husband was the only thing that kept me going.
So one day I was working on an abstract painting and as I usually do before I start creating my paintings, I wrote down everything I am grateful for in life, and to me it was like I had been made whole again as I felt I was alive on the inside and the outside.
I tried to communicate everything I was feeling through the lines, shapes, and colours in the painting. All my paintings mean a lot to me because behind them lies the reason I am grateful for being alive.
Some people keep saying I will get nowhere as an artist, that there is no value in what I create, and that my art is just a colourful mess. But for me it goes beyond all that, it is the reason I am alive, it is love in colours, it is passion translated into art, and above all, it is my life story.
I am proud to say that love, faith and art have healed me, and I know they can heal anything.
If someone asks me what kind of art I make, I will say it is the art of my soul.
And that is why I call it Art Feeling and Connection.
Because to make art you have to feel, you have to be connected with everything around you, not only on the inside but on the outside as well. Everything in life is art, everything in life is made of love and faith.
And if you don’t love, don’t feel and don’t have faith you cannot be connected with art.
So make your art the window to your soul.
