"Hopefully my love for nature lives on in my art"
Inspired by nature and traveling
Almost all my work is inspired by nature, from animals to beautiful landscapes and flowers. I enjoy it immensely, whether it is in my backyard or at a place far from home.
I prefer to use my own photographs as a reference for my paintings. This way I first experience the 'wow' moment when photographing a beautiful scene or animal and then I try to translate that moment into paint on the canvas.
Traveling is a passion I share with my husband. Our ultimate travel destination is a combination of nature and intimate cities or picturesque villages. My favorite places so far: Bolivia, Iceland, Namibia, New Zealand, Peru, South Africa and Yellowstone.
