Since 2007 beautiful landscapes from Northern California inspired her to paint. After visiting museums around Europe, Mexico and since 2005 in San Francisco she decided she wanted to be an artist and paint the colors of the sky, mixing with the clouds, and she asked herself: What do I need to be able to paint? , maybe I just need to buy the materials.
