In my experience, art is a vital means of opening up discussions and creating new worlds. I am passionate about telling stories and helping others find avenues of expression through art. Art is a powerful means of giving a voice to those who struggle to find one, and I hope to be a facilitator of this process through art therapy. I also aim to use art to convey meaningful messages to others through writing and illustrating children’s books.
