Q+A

Why is art important to you?

Art is an expression of thoughts and feelings. Art allows me to express myself, to feel whole and free, to be calm, present and patient.

During my breaks, I tend to ...

Clean, read, research something. And if I feel stuck and restless, I love going for long walks while listening to good music.

Which piece of art you've created is your favourite, and why?

The "Mystical" mural. My first mural created during my trip to Italy. The moment I discovered my love to murals.

Describe your home in 3 words

Beverage of choice

Tea. Any time, many times a day.

What places do you hang out in Toronto?

Mostly parks. Brickworks, Ramsden Park, Eglinton Park and I also like Harbourfront.
