Since childhood I sketched and drew from imagination and from what I saw.
Ecoline, Indian ink, charcoal, colored pencil sometimes. Participated in competitions for schools, so I took a ceramics course, where I had got the taste of address. Exhibited in a nearby exhibition.
Yet I did not choose art as profession, because I wanted to be there for 'the other'. During the "music-Ludic” school for social pedagogical work, I learned many techniques in the creative medium classes.
Free work remained in small drawings and illustrations and loose assignments.
Later I picked up the thread in a study
A training to teach outside schools. Where I learned the basic of visual expression and different ways of visual art.
That said, I really liked working with clay and during an art fair in Paradiso I went on the market successfully.
Then a few years I gave the course "Sketch imagination” to adults.
Caring for my children kept me from going on with ceramics by the lack of a studio and kiln toxic glazes. I stayed in the art world by piggybacking during my marriage to an artist and put my own development on the back burner.
In 1999, I literally pulled my own way in 'the world' and found a new home with my sons. With custom colors and atmosphere around me.
However, I focused entirely on developing my ‘awareness’ and that of others and started a new career in the psychological direction, made personal coaching of people my profession.
Yet I always longed for self-expression
In 2003 I finally landed in front of the easel. In stimulating environment my artists' blood really began flowing. It sparkles and bubbles inside me and ideas follow one another. I work fully experimental, and aim to express 'the idea' and study subjects to express.
After this beginning of my art career, I paint as much as I can. With the aim to form series around a theme while new ideas arise from processing new impressions in oil paintings. I am full of inspiration, thus more quickly than my speed to create a painting. I feel like I have a lot to catch up with.
I would pick up the thread of road to become an artist, I once started. And to realize what I always wanted as a child. And that is: expression in image, form and color. And more and more, create and produce my art and put it in the public domain.
