What do you aim to say by the themes in your art?
Go! Create! I want to inspire people, I want them to feel the art. I also don’t want to frame my images for the viewer. I believe that everyone can see something on their own in every artwork.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from anything, I truly believe that one can find it everywhere.
Do you have experiences that impacted your art?
When I moved to the big city, I found myself working as a photographer, doing quite ordinary photoshoots and that seemed not enough for me. That was the time when I started making collages. To create something more than typical image. It was like something beautiful exploded inside of me.
Do you feel your art challenges existing barriers?
Yes, I do! As a pansexual woman I’m truly proud to show my art and myself! Do you hear barriers creaking?
What are your long-term artistic goals? 
Oh, I want to be world-famous artist, who doesn’t? And I want a solo show in New York.
What advice do you have for aspiring artists?
Don’t you ever dare to stop. You must believe in yourself.
