Mixed media artist

She worked for many  years in large corporations  and hold many highly paid executive positions. She was seriously unhappy and decided to give it all up  and start over,  pursuing  her real passion, a career as an artist.

She also founded  "TheBeyourownBossAcademy",  a company that offers coaching and training services to help other  people do the same.

INSPIRATION

She is inspired by Wabi sabi,  a traditional Japanese philosophy,  appreciating  beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete",  in the words of art books a "flawed beauty".

She is also intrigued by the beauty and sophistication of old, weathered walls,  with decaying finishes and rough textures, where layers of paint peel away to reveal older paint underneath, creating a beautiful contrast between the lighter and darker tones.  

SIGNATURE PAINTING STYLE

Her signature painting style is textural abstraction and her primary medium is acrylic on canvas.

 She often also explores the world of mixed media art, using  a layered, cumulative process of collaging, sanding and repainting techniques. In her works, used paper, old wallpaper, aged fabric and found objects blend harmoniously together with paint, creating a new, fascinating whole.
