What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

Art encourages me to take care of myself. I know I create most freely when I am feeling nourished, safe, and adventurous. 

For me, art encourages play and careful observation. I easily get lost in my own imagination and can find it hard to express myself with words.

Creating art is important to me because it allows me to excavate daydreams by bringing them into reality. I love that it gives me balance between dreaming and being grounded.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I hope to have seen more parts of the world, and have found a studio space to create in together with friends.

Would love to have put on an art show, maybe with projection art. 

Professionally, I would have hoped to build out my clients and found a base whose values align with my own. 

What do you hope to achieve with your art?

That’s a great question, and one that I’m still learning the answer to. For some time, my goal has been to bring a sense of wonder to others.

I want to make more space in the world for the cute and colorful when those sides of us can feel dismissed or devalued.

I think that like most things, art is best experienced with the mind and body. That’s why physical space and projection art appeal to me. I have a long way to go, but I’m excited for what the future holds.
