‘My inspiration is curiosity’...
 
At the beginning of each painting, she always faces a great challenge, like an expedition to her inner self, following her feelings and combining the personal thoughts with the emotions of her heart. The spiritual and emotional vibrations work together, overlap and combine with each other into a snap-shot. The finished work, which has a certain emotional potential in itself, is waiting for the next development of the theme. It's waiting for a new creation from a different perspective, in another light. That what she has achieved is one step within her artistic journey, but it’s never an aim. „Being ready“ doesn't exist for her, only a permanent sharpening of the senses. She tries to express whatever she experiences, that what she lives and see, what she feels: impressions, the world of senses, of the spirit. The reality that she reproduces within her work, is gradually reduced, as she avoids to express specific details, omitting irrelevant details.
