Born and raised in California, this artist is a spiritual being, watercolour composer and one eclectic DJ.
What is your fondest memory of your childhood? Riding my bicycle while having my dog pull me and feeling the wind tossing my hair, admiring my sticker and eraser collection, listening to my dad’s records and dancing carefree to them. When did you first realise you were creative? I loved looking at my colour pencil collection, the idea of colouring neatly within the lines and picking colour combinations. It is also my earliest memory of what it feels like to be in a creative flow. What do you love about watercolour? I feel that it allows me to express myself in a way that goes beyond language, beyond societal rules, beyond boundaries. A conversation with another without needing to verbally say anything. A mutual connection and yet there is room for interpretation, for the other person to express how they feel. It is effortless and boundless, an out-ofbody and spiritual experience. Do you have any daily rituals? Yes. I wake up between 6:30 and 7:30am every day and for about an hour to an hour and a half I have a spiritual practice that consists of meditation, reading, journaling and exercising and/or gardening. It makes a huge difference in all that I do, especially when painting, when I am able to have this time for myself in the morning. What are you most curious about? I’m curious about everything! Curiosity should have been my middle name.
