My Story

I grew up being a good student wanting to have a "serious job." But once I was all done with my intense studies, a health crisis made me realize that I couldn't postpone any longer what I was truly passionate about: bringing hope to other people through art. Schools are often gloomy places, hospitals can be scary for patients undergoing treatment, and homes with bare walls can be dull. However, you can find relief, peace, and even joy in a colorful and uplifting painting. That's what I strive to share through my murals and paintings on canvases.
