My artwork is inspired by a lifelong interest in personal spiritual exploration influenced by my indigenous roots from Siberia and Lapland. My grandmother would speak of the unseen realms beyond our physical world, and she taught me the value of incorporating spirituality into everyday life.
After my breast cancer diagnosis in 2015, I was motivated to paint more intense images of the spirit world. My paintings are a reminder that we are more than just our physical bodies. Persistence, wisdom, and love—rather than fear—enrich our daily lives, adding meaning and depth.
As a side hobby, I’d paint visions seen during quiet moments of meditation. My art is a humble attempt to depict the amazing colors and beauty of this mysterious “other.” After a lifetime of exploration, I know we possess eternal souls. I hope to inspire others with my art, uplifting and encouraging people to connect with their own inner spirituality. I named this art “Uplifted”.
