Ever since, her view towards art have changed when she discovered her biggest interests which related to life, scenery painting. Nature view gave her so many questions abou tlife and how she questions about lives in her painting. After that she joined different exhibitions but reality travels faster than her dream.
Currently she’s an art teacher in an international school but she’s trying to exhibit her work, because she knows she needs to grab the chances whenever there’s opportunity. Her current work is about reality vs fantasy,where we always awake by our subconscious between these circumstances.
