“I find extreme fulfillment and satisfaction in creating things with my hands. Being able to manifest my inner being through what I personally consider visually appealing images gives me peace and joy. Beautiful music is my primary source of artistic inspiration. It opens up my soul and empowers me to fearlessly interpret the feelings that these melodies stir within depths of my soul.
