She paints street art, custom murals and canvases with various techniques.
Her dreamlike, colorful murals often include portraits of people, animals and nature.
She was born and raised in the countryside spending most of her days in the nature with animals, and this feeling of connecting to nature and all living things is very important element in her work.
Her aim is to create more vibrant, peaceful and beautiful surroundings into the suburbs and places that are otherwise lacking color and emotion.
