Drawing from her background in painting and fine art, she aims to capture the transformative effect of light on various colours in nature. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣Through her art, she celebrates self-forgiveness and the process of healing from traumas and insecurities. She makes art to transform raw emotions into theraputic experiences for herself and her viewers.
