I am a mother and wife. My daughter is two and a half, a second baby arriving in a few weeks. We plan to have a great big family with 3 or 4 children. And we live in a big former winery house. My free time is very short.

My work is...
, straightforward, simple and easy with a sense of humor. I try to get to the bottom of everyday occurrences. It all began in kindergarten and it will never end. I make art everyday. The style changes over the years, but my work from two years ago looks similar to my art today.

To aspiring artists who work hard to find their own voice: keep cool, stay open and take the time to gain experience to find yourself.
