“I am interested in line, color and composition to give expression to what I perceive in my surroundings; People working in the fields, chickens, and landscapes, which are all reflections of my mind and soul.”

She has continued her studies through her life with a focus on art and calligraphy, having completed additional programs at the Summit Art School in New Jersey, the Basis Art School in Israel, with artist Leo Ray, Calligraphy with Professor Albertus Gurskash in Lithuania, and Massimo Polello in Italy.
