I find inspiration for my artwork in what surrounds me; the beauty of nature is my biggest inspiration. Since childhood, I have been fascinated by flowers. I remember how back in the day, my grandmother’s garden was full of flowering plants. I could smell them as I ran by. I will never forget their beauty. Those memories inspire me and still lighten my mood today. I have always wanted to express my feelings, but I haven’t found the right words to show the world my taste for natural beauty. Therefore, I have started to pour my heart and soul into my paintings - to convey my emotions. I create realistic botanical paintings, focusing on details and subtle undertones, paying special attention to elements that will easily be overlooked.
