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 a home with bare walls is dull. But 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.
