I‘m a self taught artist with a passion for morocco and 1001 nights, who wants to make the world a more magical place! I paint vibrant, oriental artworks for free spirits and dreamers. Let me inspire you and take you to far away places!
I believe that magic happens for those who want to see it and let it be part of their lifes. We are all one, no matter which religion or believes we have.
Even as a little kid I painted with big enthusiasm and dreamed about being an artist. I had my first experience with acrylic painting while going to my first painting lesson with a friend at the age of 9. After that I got my first art supplies and art became my big passion. Since my first morocco travel in 2015, where I met my husband and true love in the Sahara Desert, I’m in love with with the oriental patterns, the culture, the colors and architecture of morocco. This magical experience changed my life forever and I started to bring my dreams, hopes and feelings of missing my husband and morocco on canvas.
My paintings share my view and magical experiences from the oriental world. They are about getting lost and finding yourself again. They are about the inspiring moments, places, people and feelings that I experienced through my travels. With my art, I want to teleport the viewer to the magical places I dream of while I‘m painting. I want to connect and open doors to a new perception of the oriental world, with it’s different religions and cultures.
I use a water-based acrylic technique combined with lots of patterns and architectural shapes in my work, to allow the viewer to have a glimpse on the world of a 1001 nights and share the dream. My work is very detailed, because it’s often the little details that are necessary to see what’s really important in the “big picture”, as well as in life.
