What I do on my paintings are Butterflies that sends messages of hope, happiness and healing. I sometimes collaborate those with mother and child theme that pictures me as a woman, a mother, and once I have also been a child.
As I am, as a “rediscovered artist”, I found inspiration on butterflies that symbolizes changes and life.
It shows me spirited rebirth on how I am as an artist; a transformation on how I am as a mother and a woman; and inspired me to look at life in a joyful and lighthearted way.
