I consider myself a creative young adult, who has a passion for creating art through photography, video and drawing.
Although I do not wish to be defined by my disability, I am an amputee. I was born with a condition called Fibular Hemimelia and had my left leg amputated below the knee when I was 18 months old.
I love the arts and in 2019 I committed to renting an art studio so I can immerse myself in my art, surrounded by
like-minded, creative, inspiring, working artists.
Being an amputee in the art field may be challenging, but my passion and desire are so strong, I know I will succeed
I look forward to it.
Photography is where I found and first begun developing my passion for the arts. I love to explore different ways of telling a story through photography. As a young child, I knew instinctively that the arts could be a refuge for me. I suppose that is because embracing creativity was a way for me to escape inner turmoil and my disability. Art is not only a way for me to express my emotions but it is a platform for me to communicate the social and cultural aspects that surround my life.
