“Creating art for me is like meditating with my eyes open. I get lost in my emotions, as it allows me to connect with my intuition. Art has played a massive part in my life, by helping me to explore my imagination which jump started my healing journey, it gave me hope, excitement, inspiration and freedom. And I wish to extend those feelings through my artwork to world. Especially to those who need that something to make them feel alive again.
Because everyone needs a space to be their true authentic self and I have defiantly found mine.”
