I am a self-taught artist and enjoy challenges, loving to discover.
As a women, I have been attracted by jewellery and one day, I started creating necklaces.
During this journey, I discovered the effect of energy generated by gemstones and got excited about designing any kind of jewellery.
I adore and value the imperfections of a natural material that brings charm and beauty to any piece.
I love creating unique items, infused with positive energy, true love, wearable anytime of the day, making people special, every second of their lives.
I am also a fine artist painter.
I started painting with oil colors on stretched canvas using brush, palette knife and fingers and, recently, after many years, I decided to begin something else, more interesting, the cold wax medium, using a brayer roller and palette knife.
Cold wax and encaustic medium became very attractive to me due to effects on depth, texture, volume, dimensions. During my hikes, I collect barks, lichens, sand and other materials I feel connection with and I incorporate it in my paintings to enhance the depth of my art.
I fell in love with mixed media as visual art effect and endless fun and richness this media would bring. Therefore, I started to incorporate fabrics, lace, sand, cold or hot wax, barks, lichens, etc, increasing the depth and dimension of every work.
I am member of VAM ( Visual Arts Mississauga ), Markham Group of Artists, Ontario, Canada.
