Vi­brant, open, creative, pas­sion­ate, and am­bi­tious.

What in­spires you to cre­ate?

Hu­man in­ter­ac­tion and the en­vi­ron­ment.

The story be­hind the works you pre­sented at the art fair?

It’s about the hu­man spirit, traces, and in­tent. Out of those four, one was an in­ter­ac­tive piece. What made this one dif­fer­ent? The fact it dealt with push­ing bound­aries and be­ing sup­ported; de­vel­op­ing new strate­gies and pro­ject­ing per­son­al­ity. The piece is about hu­man essence, ori­gin, and cur­rent in­tent. It re­flects beau­ti­ful ten­sion.

What is art to you? Art is about open­ness and pos­si­bil­i­ties. It is also about mak­ing new con­nec­tions with souls.

Can’t live with­out? Mak­ing, cre­at­ing, do­ing, and dream­ing.

Art in­flu­encers? Jean-Michel Basquiat, Vin­cent Van Gogh, Jean Dubuf­fet, and Kurt Sch­wit­ters.
