Realism inspired multimedia artist constantly in pursuit of creating timeless artwork.

She likes to capture the essence of the subject by focusing on details and little nuances. Her work ranges from portraiture, cityscapes, landscapes to still life. Besides oil painting she also works with graphite, charcoal and pen n ink.
