Only through art, I am emotionally engaged, I feel safe and I don't have to conceal my imperfections and vulnerability. Being artistic has allowed me to open up and to fully embrace my individuality. I grew up studying and developing a strong fascination for Romanticism, Baroque and Rococo Art. I never imagined that I would take the path of a designer until I was introduced to Dadaism. Dada expanded my imagination and inspired me to become experimental. My exposure to collage techniques and typography led to my exploration and journey into the world of graphic design. Taking in and adhering to design principles, practices and notions enhanced my writing capabilities, challenged my thought process and helped me discover my voice as a visual storyteller. Art and design have both served as a platform for me to express to the world the things that are most valuable to me.
