Before and After – Acrylic on canvas, 40″w x 30″h

My interest in Art and Psychology began at a young age and continues to influence my work to this day.” she has stated, and this is evident in her paintings. Her work can vary from a calm face with purple butterflies to a ragging tiger. She expresses feelings, relationships, nature and how one iteract with the other. 


With Surrealism being the grand marriage of the [Art and Psychology], I was naturally drawn to every aspect behind the movement. Themes I explore involve the human psyche- who we are and how we interact with each other, and the world we live in- our relationship with other animals and nature, as well as the cycle of life and connections between all life forms. I work in series, each painting has its own message, with the overall concept conveying respect for all of nature and humanity“. And still she is very young to narrate more stories with her paintings. Enjoy.
