Since I was a young girl, my mother has been a great source of inspiration, teaching and support. She taught me how to write and read, and she showed me how to love and appreciate nature by observing the beauty of the leaves, the sky, the far away mountains, the colors that flowers, fruits, insects and animals have. She taught me to observe and appreciate rocks, dirt, water and all matter that can be simple or not beautiful at first but that is amazing in its own world.
Since then I started to observe the great diversity of our world and spiked me to draw it and then paint it. Thus, many years later, I graduated with a Fine Art degree, and her teaching and inspiration always has been with me. Now as I continue to grow as an artist, her lessons and words continue to nourish my creativity and inspiration.
