Her inspiration to paint, came, while on a trip to the South of France, retracing the footsteps of painters like Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso Renoir, etc. The beauty and tranquility of the Provence area, the colorful fields of Poppy and Lavender instilled in her a desire to capture all that magic, translating it on canvas with oil paints.
