Born into a family rich in artistic pursuits, I’ve navigated various career paths, initially finding myself in roles as a design engineer and architect after college. However, the recession of 2006 upheaved my structured life, leading me to reinvent myself.

Returning to college, I immersed myself in theatre, film and television, exploring roles ranging from set dresser to actor.

Amidst this journey, art remained a constant. Working in an art gallery, I discovered a talent for teaching while also freelancing as a photographer to sustain myself.

Eventually, teaching became my primary focus. But over time, I realized I was neglecting my own artistic aspirations.

Today, I’m prioritizing my art, embracing a “just do it” mindset. Digital art has become my medium of choice, aligning well with my lifestyle and allowing me to dedicate more time to the business and marketing aspects of my practice.

My inspiration stems from the digital landscape of social media. As I scroll through endless posts and reels, accompanied by my music, I’m struck by scenes that evoke a desire to capture and reproduce them.

While my art isn’t confined to any specific theme, it invites viewers to interpret and derive their own meanings.
