About Fungi

Throughout history, mankind has been fascinated by fungi. They are neither plants nor animals but live in a symbiotic relationship with both. They are all around us and inside us, but they often remain invisible.

Over the past few decades, scientific discoveries have shown how the underground network (mycelium) of fungi connects ecosystems and builds our world. Yet, the world of fungi is still filled with mysteries waiting to be revealed.

What motivated the artist?

History of the human race is a remarkable story of innovation and change. Our journey of exploring scientific solutions to combat the climate crisis is clear evidence of this.

As an abstract artist, my journey began with landscape painting as an original expression. Delving deeper, I realised the versatile potential of my work – not only as interior design but also as a means of sharing inspiration and knowledge.

Recognising the challenge of making science more accessible to non-scientists, I embarked on a unique project to fill this gap. By creating different collections of paintings that depict scientific concepts, I am bringing science and art closer together.
