About Me

Doodling, drawing, painting, and creating things have been with me since early childhood. Growing up in the countryside there were so many things in the garden and my mother’s sewing room that I could explore and try to make something new. The large bookshelf in our home was also a source of imagination for me. Being surrounded by books at such a young age contributed to my love for stories. Today I get so much inspiration from old myths, legends, and fairytales. I can’t help being drawn toward the mysterious, unique, and slightly scary.

Throughout my artistic journey, I have explored many different mediums. To mention a few it has been drawing both traditionally and digitally, woodworking, charcoal, acrylic, and watercolour paintings, sculpting in clay, and Chinese calligraphy. I have finally landed on relief printmaking. To me, it combines drawing, painting, and the hands-on mindful experience I had during sculpting when I carve out the linoleum plate.

Each of my relief prints has a story connected to them. Some of the stories are larger and more complex. Others are simple moments from a larger picture. I quite enjoy making smaller series or projects that belong to one story or have different viewpoints from the same tale.
