SoMK spent several years at the creative end of the advertising business, and accidentally ended up as a teacher of programming languages for the computer industry. In 2001, blissfully unaware, she embarked on a full-time artistic career, becoming a painter, sculptor and jewelry maker!

Her love of precision, blown up deadlines, details and hard work, and the proven 'recipes' that she has learnt, rediscovered and incorporated in her work, shine through the simplicity and patience involved in creating the traditional technique of illumination. Be it in jewelry or illustration, SoMK draws her inspiration from a variety
of sources - a combination of nature, history, fantasy, science-fiction, horror and whisky. She now lives and works from France.
