Q: Where do you find your creative inspiration?
A: "Through meditation, spiritual practices, and being in nature"
Q: Why do you do what you do?

Q: What art/artist do you most identify with?
A: "I love all forms of art, but abstract and psychedelic art tends to speak to me the most"
Q: What role does an artist have in society?
A: "I think an artist's role is to become an example for others to be more freely expressive, and to help people see that a better world and more liberated versions of themselves are possible."
Q: What is your artistic outlook on life?
A: "My artistic process has helped me understand the ways I can create my own reality, and choose to love and accept all aspects of life, both positive and negative. "
Q: What advice would you give your younger self?
A: "I would tell my younger self to relax and keep creating"
