The first month exhibiting, she sold 5 paintings and was commissioned to paint 20 more. This was a dream come true for Lelia. To be able to work at what she loved and also to stay home with her young son. Since that time, Lelia has sold over 600 original works to corporate and private collectors from all over the world.
