Art has always been around me, as a teenager I said I was going to be an artist but never had a clear direction of the kind of artist I wanted to be. I would say after many years I am one of the lucky
ones photography found, I started pursuing art as a pencil artist and right after my daughter was born in 2018 I felt like I’d lost the skill to draw and right then was when I got into photography and then specifically analog photography.
Photography gave me back the passion to pursue art and guided me finding my true calling on earth as an artist.
I used to say my art was inspired by nature but as an adult my art is inspired by life experiences, people and everything around me. I have realized I create out of anger, depression, dreams, visions and music.
