My artwork has been deeply inspired by the things that I had to go through. The paths that lead me to my artwork. My portraits are a self-reflection of what I am currently dealing with or what I have faced. We go through our lives hiding the inner parts of ourselves in fear of acceptance. I believe that artwork is a way to express the deepest layer of our human emotions. A chance to rid the fear of vulnerability and to rip away our everyday masks.
