She moved to the united States in the early 90’s settling in Utah where she felt in love with the naïve American wilderness and its traditions. In 2001 her painted oil sketches and photographs exhibition was the result of her recent trip to Morocco the year before.
In 2002 and 2003 she brought her flowers study painting and vases, an inspiration she had from the 9/11 attacks in New York.
“A flower in a vase became an act of peace and poetry in a time of bombardment. Vases and vessels hold the living, but even that which holds is fragile. These images are a timely reminder that suggest the precariousness of containment.”
