A part of her vision
Art is my passion.
Contemporary visual arts have always been my main means of expression. The image of the human body in movement inspires me. Emotion is communicated through actions and facial expressions, whether in sculpture, painting or digital art.
I sculpt the body with the clothes and I aim to free the movement of colors and shapes to transform the woman’s body in a dynamic, fluid and chic way. My sources of inspiration, namely contemporary arts and the modern woman, infuse a unique style to my creations.
I dream of a free, strong and expressive woman that asserts her femininity, intelligence and determination. And with my team, I am working on making all that possible in an elegant way.
