She believes that creativity has various meanings and ways of being explored, expanded and one of many of them is art. She says: "By awakening your own creativity, you touch your soul. Who are you if you do not touch your soul? Just flesh and bones?". She has amazing teaching skills and even those who have certain doubts about their artistic abilities start to believe in themselves as she awakens them to their own creative potential.
