About Me

Becoming a full-time artist

Every brushstroke carries a story, a tale of resilience, and a journey of transformation. If you’ve ever wondered what inspired this colourful odyssey, let me share with you the turning point that led me to the canvas.

It was a year of unexpected twists and turns, of facing mortality head-on and finding solace in the embrace of creativity. In 2023, fate dealt me a hand I never saw coming. Struck down by Renal Vein Thrombosis, a rare and life-threatening condition, I found myself at death’s door. My body, ravaged by illness, fought against overwhelming odds, with my kidneys and lungs besieged by blood clots.

As I lay in hospital bed, grappling with the fragility of life, tragedy struck once more. The loss of my beloved Nini, a precious light extinguished too soon, shattered me to the core. And just when I thought the storm had passed, another tempest raged within me. An infarction in my lung stole inches of breath, leaving me with only remnants of function.

Bedridden, breathless, and battling against despair, I sought refuge in the one sanctuary that remained – art. With each stroke of the brush, I found solace, healing, and a glimmer of hope. In the depths of darkness, I discovered the transformative power of creation, as painting became my lifeline and my salvation.

Slowly, steadily, I began to emerge from the shadows, my spirit renewed, and my purpose redefined. Though my journey had taken an unexpected detour, I embraced the path laid before me, relinquishing the reins of resistance and surrendering to the flow of fate.

Today, as I stand before you, I am not just an artist; I am a survivor, a storyteller, and a testament to the resilience of the human spirit. My art is not just a reflection of colour and form; it is a testament to the journey of healing and the triumph of the human soul.

So, when you gaze upon my creations, know that they are more than just paintings; they are a testament to the power of resilience, the beauty of transformation, and the boundless possibilities that arise when we surrender to the flow of life.

Welcome to my world, where every brushstroke is a brush with destiny, and every colour is a celebration of life. Join me as we embark on a journey of discovery, healing, and hope, one painting and one sketch at a time.
