What inspires you to create?
“The answer is as simple as this, everyday life inspires me to create.
Being a photographer, I’m constantly capturing moments and what a shame it would be to reflect on those moments and not be inspired to experience bigger and better ones. Life is a beautiful thing and I find daily inspiration in anything from witnessing birds fly to watching the 5pm rush on transit.”
How do you think creative women are perceived in the industry?
“I think we are perceived as passive and soft-spoken. To me that is amusing, simply because women are so powerful and once you combine that with a creative mind becomes a driven woman on a mission.
I think our feminine essence is our secret weapon, we don’t intimidate but we sure will throw people off with our mental and creative capabilities.”
How do you perceive feminism?
“I feel as though feminism has changed a lot throughout the years. Personally it’s not about proving equality and fighting for our rights but focusing on unity, sisterhood as well as acceptance.
That’s what I’m here for, to uplift and work together with other feminine souls.”
Where do you wish to take your art in the future?
“I want my art to develop and live in galleries amongst my greatest inspirations as well as in the hearts of others, starting a movement soon to come.
