In my art, I strive to capture emotions that transcend words, creating spaces for personal interpretation and connection. My process is intuitive and evolves naturally, focusing on themes of adversity, personal growth, and hope. In my studio, amidst music and emerging ideas, I find my truest joy in transforming visions into tangible expressions through color and form. My goal is for viewers to not just see, but feel my art, finding in it a reflection of their own journeys and emotions.
