Zhostovo hand painted Tray

Here my journey began

   " About ten years ago I quit my job as the Nuclear Medicine Technologist because of breast cancer. And one morning I suddenly understood: Life is too short. Now is the moment to start to do what you´ve dreamed for all your life-to be the artist. Since then, I wake up every day with happiness to stay in my small workshop painting my landscapes, seascapes, abstracts and portraits.

Every single day is too short for me now. Only night is totally mine! I work up to 4:30 a.m. sometimes. Practicing yoga I find out how to sleep much less than before.

Today I am a full time artist. I love what I do. And I am very happy woman!"
