Her work received 1st prize in category “Beauty: Pro” at the International Photography Awards. Notes about the artist (published at Flickr): “I always wanted to be a painter…I came to NYC when I was 17 to study Fine Arts at SVA… I sweated over large canvases, night after night, creating hyper realistic oil-paintings of nude men and women. I was angry, full of vigour, and aggressively against anything untraditional and “modern”.

very cool architecture Wood is both universal and unique. No other material is as deeply embedded in the history, culture and life of humans worldwide as wood, yet every single piece of wood is unique. The color tone, texture, durability, flexibility and even sound qualities of different tree species have puzzled and challenged artists, architects, designers, builders and artisans for thousands of years.

They use wood to meet their current needs and desires for which wood is ideally suited. People seek calm surroundings, simplicity and minimalism to soothe their frayed nerves and to counter the constant visual overload they face.
