Very appealing! Paring the amount of colurs used down to the basic colurs makes her work very special and unique. Thank you for intriducing her!

Glad you like her work Marjan. True. The specific palette she uses as well as the characters, shapes and patterns of course,makes her work recognizable. I can look at her illustrations for hours, soaking in every single detail.
