How did you start in Art?
I have always drawn.... mostly faces. Faces fascinated me ever since I was a little girl..... I used to draw faces everywhere.
Who is/was your master?
Hard to answer..... I look to different artist every day for inspiration. But I suppose the artist who had most influence on me was Edgar Degar..
Do you think that training is Important or prefer self-taught?
I always thought self-taught was the best way to go..... but now, looking back, I wish that I had some solid art instruction. Mind you, I have had loads of fun finding out for myself.... but some justification would have been good in this stage of my career.
It is possible to live from Art?
Exist.... maybe, yes. But I think you have to make sacrifices for your passion.... many!
Transpiration or inspiration?

Work of art that you would like to be the Author and Why
I haven't done it yet..... but I am working on my own masterpiece.
Is there a Price for Art?
Being selfish.... is something that I have found most disturbing to me..... but I have had to say no to so many things for the sake of spending extra time in the studio.
Everything can be art or are there limits?
I once thought there were no limits..... but some people just take things too far! There are always some who need to push others shock buttons!
Digital Art. Yes or no?
I think it is very clever, and requires a talent too.... but I don't like the fact that it is included in many art exhibitions and judged equally with analogue art. Digital art, after all, doesn't exist in real life..... and if it does, it's just a print! (Apologies to my digital artist friends.... whom I admire enormously for what they do.)
