STATEMENT OF ART:
My love for fine art and my interest in pop culture is longstanding. Growing up with a fascination for the visual arts and discovering commercial art while studying fine arts at university made me realize that becoming a designer was my true purpose. Design is part of me. It is what I am most passionate about.

I’m a designer because I find value in what I do. Design is a balance between problem-solving, strategy, logic and creativity. This makes design a profession with endless possibilities. I am constantly innovating, learning and exploring new ideas. Experimenting with different forms of design, I’ve been fortunate to work on several types of projects in a variety of media.

Art and design is a big part of my life, and one can’t come without the other. I am grateful that I can work in this field.
