Who I Am
Back in 2013 I started drawing. I loved to just copy different photos I found on social media, and draw them on a page in front of me. Whenever I was in class, I would try and pull out my little sketch book and pencil and sneak in a doodle here and there. This hobby soon developed into a passion. From 2013-2018 , I was constantly creating art pieces. Over the years, I went from sketching and immersed myself into the world of painting and watercolour. By 12th grade (2015), I was taking two different art classes in school, where I developed my skills through different mediums, forcing myself out of my comfort zone.
By the time I was 19, I was studying Fine Arts at University in Vancouver, Canada. Eventually I dropped out of Uni after doing a Student Exchange program, sending me to the UK for a semester. I decided to travel. I ended up travelling throughout the Netherlands, UK, and Jersey in the Channel Islands. Throughout my travels and growth as a human being, my artistic endeavours evolved as well.
I fell in love with writing. I fell in love with sharing my stories of travel, love, food, and mental health triumphs with the world, and most of all... I fell in love with being my most authentic self throughout my walk of life. I share pieces of myself here on my blog, through Instagram, through the people I meet throughout my travels across the world, and my poetry... which will be coming to the public soon.
There are so many things I am passionate about, and so many things in this world that intrigue me that I have yet to dive into. I love to learn, I love to better myself and enrich myself as a human being, and I love to share that knowledge if that means making a positive impact in somebody else's life. I am passionate about healthy eating and nutrition. I live a mostly Vegan lifestyle, I am phasing out of shopping fast-fashion, and I am constantly striving to do my part to live a minimal, slow, and sustainable life.
Currently I am writing and working at a Specialty Coffee Shop in Jersey, Channel Islands. It is a small island tucked between the UK and France. I am working on a poetry book that I am hoping to get published that will also include some of my artworks. I am working on a visual art piece that will be showcased at a close-friend's fashion-consciousness event in early November. Lastly, I have been asked to do a photo shoot for a friend which will allow me to add more aesthetically pleasing media onto my website, Instagram, and blog posts!

My Current Inspirations
Currently I am very inspired by slow, minimal, and sustainable lifestyles. I love utilizing youtube, Instagram, and Pinterest to get creative, see other people's ideas, and gain more knowledge and tips in regards to living a life much less harmful on our planet.
Coffee culture is a huge inspiration for me. I do my best work at any sort of specialty coffee shop with a great atmosphere. I love the woods and being surrounded by trees, though I think that's the Canadian in me. I love a good soulful and heartbreaking acoustic song, it drives me to feel nostalgic and that's what gets me in the right mood for any sort of creative work.
