What do you aim to say by the themes in your art?
My themes are to get the viewer to see and think differently either in the way they see art themselves or the subjects pertaining to the artwork. So there is this interactive quality to the works where you can see and view it differently from another viewer.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspirations come from my environments. Living in cities, I’m surrounded by geometric shapes and its brutality so I love
Do you have experiences that impacted your art?
I think living in Paris, New York, and Africa definitely impact how I see and process art and how I see colors and shapes across global places.
Do you feel your art challenges existing barriers?
Sometimes because my technique is different and specific when it comes to shapes and colors. So it is very specific and its not everyone's taste.
What are your long-term artistic goals? 
My long term goals is to have an fulfilling art career as an artist where people can enjoy the works .
What advice do you have for aspiring artists?
Persistence, hard work, and passion. I think you have to love it and that keeps you going in times where life can throw a curve ball.
