ABOUT

I knew I was an artist the moment I held my first paintbrush. I was 2 years old. Something about the colours and their infinite possibilities, the joy and the freedom, spoke to me.


But then I got older. 


I started comparing myself to other artists. I got lost. I got competitive. I got defeatist. If I couldn’t be the best, what was the point?


And it was in asking myself this very question that I came to realize:


What makes art valuable is how it makes us feel. 


I make art because I need to. It’s not only the way I express myself, it’s the way I become myself. My child self. Joyous and free. Without restriction and without judgment.
