EMBRACING THE IMPERFECTIONS IN OUR ART
THE VALUE OF FINE ART PRINTS
I believe my artistic journey is a unique one in the sense that I don’t have an art background at all and everything I have learned over the years is through personal explorations and life experiences. With having a technically wired brain and years of training in math and science, turning towards art was a natural escape to find solitude in being with myself and my camera.
My personal work is a huge reflection of the emotions and experiences in my everyday life. I am especially drawn to details, light, shadows, movement, textures, the imperfections of life and blur in my work. I also challenge myself to get in the frame as often as I can to document the beauty as well as the exhaustion of motherhood! The Clickin moms community has been a huge positive influence in my life and work and where I am today in my creative journey.
