Growing into the artist I am today has been a culmination of experiences, both good and bad- like an iron going through the process of firing. I always try to see the deeper meaning in all of my experiences which in turn allows me to dive deep whenever I am in the process of creation. My works are deep and expressive of my individual. I work with different media such as pencil, pastel, ballpoint pens; but painting drew me in faster than I expected. I have been practicing as an artist for several years now. Painting was always the end point for me because I believe it is already an expressive medium, and I am glad to be able to do so.
