Her art are wall hanging sculptures created from found objects mixed with paintings.
My art is about spaces that I sense,
places that I like to travel to in my imagination.
These spaces stay hovering in my mind until
they take shape, piece by piece.
They have to become real.
Sometimes it take days, and sometimes months -- it doesn't matter.
What matters is my task to make them concrete and to be shared with the viewer -
other eyes and minds which will bring different interpretations.
After all, it is always in the eyes of the beholder.
Her art has been exhibited in art events within the US in Dallas, Washington DC and New York.
Internationally, she has exhibited in collective shows in England, Holland, Denmark,
Portugal, Spain,Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand and Bosnia, Japan & Italy.
