I was privileged to have lived in exotic countries, such as Ivory Coast, France, Kenya and Lebanon which had a great influence on my work. I started sculpting at a very early age of 7 at the convent where I was taught to use marzipan to create flowers and animals. From this point forward this fuelled my imagination and pushed my creativity to the limit, enabling me to concentrate on the form in its purest expression.
