Her father was a farmer, so as a child, she had direct contact with nature. This actually triggered  her interest to study architecture, painting, drawing and art history. It also led her to draw sketches and take photographs of landscapes that caught her attention.

"My message is always positive, with color, light. It's a message to overcome that negative feeling that can sometimes overwhelm us. It's a way to overcome that darkness, dissatisfaction or negativism.”

Her work has also been chosen by Italian wines Piccinini. One of her paintings is on the labels. It's just another way her work brings about that connection between nature and art.
