The approach to this website was to focus on the fast display of all her work, organizing it by year sets. The preview images show specific details of each painting and allow access to the fullscreen gallery upon interaction. On a technical perspective, the content is preloaded before being displayed, adding a feel of smoothness to the site's navigation.

A custom backoffice was designed and developed, allowing full management of the site's content, adding paintings, changing their order of appearance, texts and so on.
