This effect reduces cortisol that is created by stress & elevates dopamine levels improving creative problem solving. It also enables the viewer to find new previously undiscovered ways of dealing with challenges in all areas of their lives. She is inspired by Positive Psychology concepts such as Post Traumatic Growth, Broaden & Build theory informed by colour psychology. Her inspiration for colours and holographic effects come from the nature. The layering is informed by the complex nature of human beings.
She is reflecting on when we see someone from afar, it requires an open mind to not narrow the personality of that person to the subtotal of what we can see from a distance. Keeping our hearts and minds open allows us to discover more of the ever changing and unique components each one of us has.
Her work explores the complexities of the human condition and captures the feelings, mood states and process of emotional healing in colourful & holographic art. It changes throughout the day and looks different from every angle. This visual effect is inspired by the natural movement of the sun and it's changes throughout the day.
Symbolising that the natural world will always carry on and no matter how dark the night might get, the sun will always come up in the morning.
For her latest corporate commission she created an abstract expressionist painting depicting the employees Hopes & Dreams for 2021 to inspire the team to return to the office after the pandemic with a positive mindset and uplifted spirit. This also inspired her latest series of work and recent solo exhibition in London, at Pepita Art Collective.
