It was a chance discovery, that I am much grateful for. A truly amazing artist who uses multiple photographs and does some very creative stuff with Photoshop. The end result is something between a photograph and a painting; pictorialism is definitely a great influence. In her own words:

My images start and end as photographs. Each image is composed of many photographs, combined to create a picture that is no documentary recording, but a frame in a story, a snapshot of an image lit by imagination, by memory, by thought. I am using modern techniques (computer processing) to achieve these results, some of which are similar to darkroom processes, others – with cutting and pasting for collating, and others – with painting and drawing. Each image is sketched, researched and planed in detail before shooting. The postprocessing is a long phase that takes much skill, determination and energy. Each image may take anything from several weeks to months from concept to final details.
