For me painting is a way to escape to a world with no limits and no boundaries. I want in my pictures to reflect the beauty of the world and especially highlight nature and animals.

I found my inspiration for art as a very young age. I lived for seven years of my childhood close to the Alpes in France as my mother work at the UN in Geneva. The international environment and my mothers work in environmental affairs grew my interest in nature. We travelled a lot, which gave me a push to contemplate the world. Every year, we also came to Finland to our summer house which has been also one of the most triggering places for my passion as an artist.

Expressing myself visually has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. As an artist I want to talk about the beauty of nature. The struggle of endangered animals worries me, so I which to speak on their behalf. The changes in they’re environment caused by human is a serious problem, such as climate change. Biodiversity should be cherished, thus nature is our vital condition of life. It should be threaded with honor and respect. The value of nature is immeasurable. With my paintings I want to speak out for the relation between of humans and nature, but also reflect my thoughts to viewers through animals.

When working with my paintings I feel strong peacefulness, and I hope to bring the same feeling of happiness to the viewers. For me the biggest joy in life is to be able to enjoy the peace that nature can give.

Nature is close to my heart. Always.
