The artist describes her work, inspiration and unique modus operandi. "I live in Paris and I move from place to place. I have lived in Africa, Sweden,UAE, and each of these countries has given me new sources of inspiration. I never compose a picture mentally before I start painting. I stand in front of the white canvas and look at it. And as I stare, the ideas come flooding in. And, it feels as if I am in a dream. I have all the colors laid out and I know in which color my paintbrush must dip into, without even looking at the colors. It is almost as if there is a force moving my hand across the canvas. I work like a pianist who plays without notes... spontaneous, unconstrained, free and I cannot stop.I have started with Computer Art .A digital fine artist uses a computer as artistic tool,just as a traditional artist.I experiment with color,texture,and form.I print my images on canvas in large format.
