Tell us about yourself & how you became an artist
I initially studied fashion. After a couple of years in the industry, I got disillusioned and transitioned into graphic and web design. While studying graphic design, I started painting with oils and I was hooked. It did not cross my mind before to be an artist but after some soul searching, I decided to follow this path. My nature is introverted and being an artist allows me to express myself.
What is your art addressing? What kind of message do you want to convey through your art?
I like to engage the viewer and spark curiosity. While I like to draw the viewer in, at the end I paint for myself to get my inner emotions out.
What is your creative process?
I do not follow a particular plan. I have a cluttered mind that needs organizing. I start with composition, color of shapes and form on the canvas. I have a sketchbook that I sometimes refer to. My most successful works are spontaneous or by trial and error. My creative process is part subconscious, part planned and part spontaneous.

New York is eclectic, hectic and lively. The energy is contagious. I love the ability to go out and be in the middle of it. I feel free and unrestricted. I hope this energy manifest into my work.

Looking back to my first works, they were representational based. I progressed to a more fluid and abstracted view of my life.
