‘I’ve been drawing since I was 7-years-old. I discovered at elementary school that I was passionate about art.’

She only began drawing professionally, however, three years ago. That was when I realised how good I was at art.
‘For a big artwork, it takes me about one month to complete. For a medium or small canvas, it can take up to two or three weeks. I decide who and what to draw by how much I am moved and fascinated by the subject or object. How much it speaks to me on a personal, spiritual and creative level. All my artworks tell a story.’
