Agnes have a fascination for Japanese culture. Shinoïsm, one of the world's oldest religions, is her piror inspriration. The deep spiritual respect for nature in all its trees and plants, water and rivers are subject of her paintings. The rich growing, beautiful but vulnerable blossom symbolizes a new beginning and young love. And the very red leaves of the Japanese maple means contemplation and quitness. Japanese fairy tales are also part of her work. Like 'Hana San' and 'Taira Shoenko', a love story about a blossom gilr and a student.
