The big city was suffocating him. At the age of 20, he moved to a seaside town, and that’s when she realized he loved painting. Because nature encouraged her to paint the sea. She gave birth to her first child, but she only lived for three days. For a long time, with frustration, rebellion, and pain, she did not touch the brush. Life went on. She tried to get through this pain by painting. Most of the time, she conveyed her pain to her paintings and comforted them.
