It all started when Calleja fell in love with painting, the process, the exhilaration of putting paint to paper and transform a thought into a painting. As an artist the hand is the extension of the brain and with practice, this allows you with many (or few) strokes to create a painting. It is like having a little insight into the views of the artists.
Living in Malta with great weather makes it easy to paint outdoors en-plein air, with her favourite medium being watercolour, to try to capture the Mediterranean aura. From seascapes, landscapes, trees and urban scenes, the medium allows for speed and layering which are both a match to Calleja's fast painting tempo.
In her studio, Calleja uses a variety of media, including acrylics, inks, watercolour, charcoal,and pigments.
