Her great imagination, love for reading and
celtic mythology have always been the main sources
for creating her imaginative parallel worlds and
the magical atmosphere transferred on canvas
and silver jewelry. All her artwork is connected with
programmed crystals, semi-precious and precious stones,
which are embedded in every piece of jewelry and attached
inside frames of paintings.
Her inspiration comes from the mystery and
changes in nature, hidden forms and details of the mysterious,
visible and invisible realms ,
from her path of Druidry, Celtic myths, mystery,
folklore and magic.
Besides her art progress she also studies
practices and has finished master degree in Druidry,
