Do you know the story? Most likely, but let me tell you the Asian version.
One day, the youth sees the swan transform into a maiden and becomes enamored. He buys the swan in hopes it will become a girl again, but no such luck. A wise woman advises to prepare a mixture of ashes and oil, procure a yak’s tail and to pretend to fall asleep at night. The swan takes off her animal clothing and, as a human, begins to "worship her country's gods". The youth awakes, takes the skin and tosses it in the fire. The maiden faints, but the youth uses the mixture on her and fans her with the yak's tail. She awakes and marries the human, giving birth to many children.

I became an artist just before my daughter Alice was born. Yes, I was into the art since I was young. Yes, I attended art school for 7 years and then drew, painted, designed as part of my Degree and career in Architecture and Design. However, I only started calling myself an artist just before my daughter was born. While pregnant with her, I finally had the time to travelled extensively in pursuit of my art. I sharpened my skills under renowned artists at Central St. Martin’s College of Arts in London, the Ruskin School University of Oxford, and the Russian Academy of Arts.
Dance is a big part of my life. I was full time dancer for ten years. Doing choreography, making my own costumes. Picking dance skill along the way at LaSalle and ECNAD company.
My Art is reflection of me. It is complex-choreographed as a dance. Collages is made from the items I found while traveling and I think the ideas of collages are from dance costume making background. I like to think of myself as the creator of My own ideal world. Where I can be lost sometime. My very own Magical World!
