“She was born in Mongolia, close to the big Gobi desert. In her childhood she was living with her parentns in a small city between the camels and other desert animals. The land there is stretched out and a few people are living there. It has also an extreme climate and bold high mountains. Growing up there had a lot of influence on her as a painter. In nearly all her works is the Gobi dessert, mountains and their animals are present. She often call my paintings Dreams of Mongolia. They convey the atmosphere and bring piece of her soul.
