Her prints are mostly created on iPhone, iPad and computer, using a digital pen or her fingers. She also works in oil on canvas, charcoal on paper, and other materials .
The name ‘Blue Biro’ refers to the ballpoint pen. An informal and accessible tool that anybody can use, like digital painting apps and free wordpress blogging tools.
