The creative impulse struck Eva in 1996 in Paris, when she saw Impressionist pastels in the Musee d'Orsay. For her, it was a moment of understanding the meaning of fine art through the vividness of color (“the quality in which different colors, like notes in a chord, are perceived as a whole without losing their individuality”).
She independently studied the course of Painting and drawing by José Maria Parramon (by books) and participated in the master class of drawing by Vyacheslav Kurochkin.
