I have a huge experience in energy trading.

I am a mother of two kids.

And what I most love is photography – my new passion and profession.

Have you ever wondered how much more kids see than we do? How weird to us, adults, sometimes their questions seem? It is because they are capable to look at the world with glittering eyes:

“…and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it…” – Roald Dahl.

The most beautiful occurrence in children’s world is the acceptance of magic in rational world, and while the term MAGICAL REALISM is commonly used in literature, its application in photography is scarce. And should not be because there are many magical or unreal elements as a natural part in an otherwise realistic or mundane environment. I love how everything is interesting to children, the world ìmpossible`does not exist in their lives.

I look through my lenses as if I were looking ‘Through the Looking-Glass´, like Alice in Wonderland did. My lens distort the reality and make it look the way I want to see it.

I create and interpret reality the way I see it. I try to freeze a unique and never-to-happen again moment and explore it and bring it to life. I will recreate it if I missed it with means at my disposal. My images are emotional and moment-driven, irrespective of circumstances. I want to see the world with the eyes of a child, unspoilt, pure, and full of magic.

Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen!

I am the maker of music, the dreamer of dreams!
