In order to live creatively you must let go of your fear of judgment. The process of creating is a raw and humbling one; we put ourselves into our work. In my process, I experiment. I don’t follow the traditional rules and techniques of art making. I believe there are no rules when creating. I strive to push the mediums I work with to all of their various potentials, combining their different elements.
I stay curious and constantly seek exploration in culture and nature. I find inspiration all around me, in texture, colour, light, and movement. Living a creative life, like art making, is a constant process of evolution and growth. Exploring and experimenting, learning and creating.
