She has written and illustrated seven books each with a moral message for all ages. “I have always been in awe of the magnificent creations that surrounds us, and hope to capture glimpses of it in my work. I choose to emphasize the positive and the beauty of our country, awakening our feelings toward them. Sunlight is the principal in my works, creating silent patterns which constantly change, giving one variety and never ending choices.
