In my work I am interested in contemplating and exploring the movement of inner energies through the use of physical gestures and colour, to connect the outside and the inside, the spiritual and the material. It it is becoming increasingly important for me to view holistically my spiritual, creative and personal life and to let these aspects evolve together as a unique fabric. EL 17

In some paintings, a vague line appears in front of a cloud and then drifts off in a fancy and as you follow it with your eye it drags you with her; in other words, you gain a trust that she's going to take out into her world only to show you it's a shared world. MS 17
