Paintings of Olympic gymnast Simone Biles

At the beginning of March, I started a new collection of paintings. This time I wanted to focus on elite athletes and find out more about how they think, how they train and what it takes to get to that level.


This week I'm very excited to share these paintings inspired by one of my favourite athletes, Simone Biles.

She is the most decorated gymnast in the world (20 World Championship medals, out of which 14 are gold medals).

Despite starting a bit later than the typical gymnast and having a different body type, she turned everything into her favour. Her talent for spacial awareness while in movement, mixed with many years of hard, consistent work have shaped her into the icon she is today.

Every time I watch her perform I'm so inspired and compelled to create a new painting capturing her movement and energy!

Enjoy these new artworks!
