In 2019 she stumbled upon Bob Ross on YouTube and became amazed with his style of painting.

She paints in a realistic way, mixing with a wide variety of colors, making her paintings appear to be alive. She is inspired by nature, expressing her love of nature through her paintings that are characterized by a strong emotional expression. Whether she is painting a landscape, flower or portrait, each idea manifests in its own individual style. She uses a variety of different media, including oils and acrylics.
