Why did you make this work:
I created these artworks because I really want to change the world through my art. I want to see more people believing in their true potential by taking care of themselves by simply being happy through the universal language of expressing love to one another.

How was the illustration used:
I created the images to serve as a long-lasting stamp of artistic encouragement for my followers on Instagram.

How did you make this work:
My process starts by translating my hand-drawn art into digital vectors using Adobe Illustrator. I use vibrant colours that emit healing energy and geometric shapes that are influenced by my research about the golden ratio. This has been invaluable to my artistic practice and the unlimited possibilities that Pathfinder has helped me to create.
