Fine artist and visual artist; painter, designer, illustrator...

"Nature inspires me and fantasy gives me wings. I go from realism to abstract, from classic to stylized, from academic to contemporary... I like to move freely through themes, styles and materials, without formulas or creative constraints; but without giving up quality and technical improvement." (Enaile D. Siffert)

Art has always been a passion of hers from an early age. She started drawing in childhood and painting at age 18.
