The artist combines with dexterity several techniques: essentially collage and painting. Passionate about the emotional sphere, the artist created in 2022, in parallel with her studies, a collection entitled "BALANCE", abstract and colorful compositions, made of pebbles cut and glued on wood panel. These compositions are inspired by moments in life and the nature that surrounds us and evoke positive emotions. As Poppins always says, for her emotions have colors, the more colorful they are, the more positive they are.
" Painting for me is not only a grand passion but it is also a way to escape mundane and release my emotions. "
