I create from my life story
I started painting and writing as a form of emotional release when I was going through mental and physical illness and experiencing existential crisis.
My art showcases the evolution and cycle of emotions as one’s life progresses with time. It details the emotional chaos of suppressing one’s true self while facing one’s immediate society’s unachievable standards of intellect and beauty. It touches upon achieving a sense of calm and wholeness amidst said turmoil, and it demonstrates the in-between phase of emotional development; of introspection and reflection.
I focus primarily on portraits of the body and fuse it with details and intricacies of nature to both soothe the eyes and give room to stimulate fantasy. I do so to make the observer feel seen and heard as they experience their own emotional turmoil and find a space and validation for their pain.
I use acrylic paints and charcoal frequently in my work as well as writing prose and poetry.

My work is divided into series. These are phases from my life and yours too and they are always shifting; the beauty of life is in the process.
