In her serie “ Women of light ” there is a sentimental  continuum, a  Leitmotiv that is in every her  art work  , or rather the  awareness and the will to react adversity of life  through the beauty of life. Painting become an occasion to express a  “poetic”  inside world , to the freedom to express yourself  and to give space to the inside power that differentiates  the feminine. The main character of these art works are women,        women that had to overcome many trials of strength to  of their life through resilence  , bringing togheter again to their real. By a serious alchemic work  on their soul, they transform pain in joy, illness  in healing, dead in life.

She defines herself  a wabi-sabi artist because she inspires herself by  aesthetics japanese concept  based by reception of  flux  and imperfections of things.
