I am always looking for a challenge. I started painting accidentally. It was not unlike when someone decides to try a new hobby. I was thinking to paint a birthday present for my best friend and maybe some flowers for the living room. Since I came to New Zealand I was in love with the nature of this beautiful country. Especially with flowers of all kinds and shapes which became my main inspiration. I hadn't painted since university, but this time couldn't stop. I had this desire to create and explore something hands on. I felt like I had to get it out of my system. I was nearly obsessively painting and painting, trying to teach myself something new and craving the creativity that comes with that.
