Her spectrum ranges from realistic to abstract representation. The harmonious effect and the fine color tones are the result of a long painting process with special techniques in several layers. In this way, depth and freedom for the imagination of the viewer is created.

“Painting animals makes me absolutely happy. I am always amazed at how nature has created them so diverse, perfect and beautiful. My animal paintings are created in a long process: discovering a suitable subject, gathering information, comparing photos. I only start painting when I am ready. For the right mood I take a lot of time, try to recognize personality, needs, behavior and characteristics of each animal. As a painting template I choose 3 to 4 photos, one as the main subject, the others as a supplement for details and perspectives.”
