How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My work is me translating the world in a way that makes sense to me. It can be therapeutic, sometimes very raw. There are some works I have never shown to anyone. But the majority alludes to universal themes in human experience and often resonates with my audience.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being an artist means I am privileged to be able to communicate in a beautiful language.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?:
