Art is both a therapeutic tool and an opportunity to explore one’s creativity. Through art, I have been able to highlight simple and seemingly ordinary aspects of life as creatively as I can. I have used art to not only sublimate strong emotions into visual expression like paintings, but also to play with ideas, however random or odd, and to exercise my creativity through them. Photography, in particular, has been a medium that helps me capture delicate and easily overlooked moments in nature and life.
