MARVELS Limited Edition Book
The MARVELS book contains never-published-before artworks and sketches and over thirty-six photographs. The Ltd Edition comes in a Vegan Black Leather Clamshell box and the book has an Acrylic front and a Layflat binding. Her multi-award-winning body of work is brought to life in the course of two years from 2019 to 2020. This artistic series is showing the beauty and vulnerability of these beautiful buildings and animals, a way to awaken the compassion within, to give a voice to this earth’s inhabitants who have none, and for inspiring future generations to preserve their cultural heritage.
Detailed creatures of the natural realm paired with fantastical scenes of the imagination have created a signature style. An oeuvre that has become widely awarded and that can be found in esteemed private collections on a global scale.
Essentially, she creates imaginary worlds composed of photographed parts of nature and locations across the globe.
Her work can be summarized in three ways -
Authentic, Imaginative, and a longing for beauty.
