With a mother who is also an artist and art teacher I grew up having access to an art studio to experiment and play in.
Art for me is about disconnecting and trusting my knowledge and intuition to use the elements of art to communicate. I love Picasso’s quote: “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them as an artist.”
I love learning and I love experimenting and my arts practice revolves around both.
