I am a professional artist, always busy with my own art projects. Most of my life has been dedicated to children – who are my inspiration and passion. I always guide the kids through not only traditional art techniques and media, but explore the possibilities of working with a wide variety of materials: seeds, shells, wood scraps, dry flowers and leaves for making collages, and dyeing, sewing and embroidering when we are working with fabrics My second passion is space organizing and decorating. I have been working for five years in New York creating specific styles and atmosphere for my client's houses. I designed window treatments, selected fabrics and embellishments, fabricated soft cornices, draperies, and bedding ensembles from start to finish. And I also loved to decorate walls: faux finishes, stencils, murals.
