Everything she loves has some ethnic origin. From exotic foods, Indian Saris, Jewelry, different cultures, Arabic music, Hookah and even the Indian elephant and the spiritual. She is a passionate person that usually goes full speed when she loves something.

Her paintings show vibrant brush strokes with feelings of color and mood. What is most important to her is that her work conveys a certain mood to the viewer without too much analyzing.
