I love ART.

It has helped me to understand which colors have the most power to affect people and the answer is RED.

Mixing colors, reading and meditation.

Is technology good or evil — why?

Technology is good! For artists it is fantastic, we are now able to connect with other artists from all over the world. We also have the ability to show and sell our art everywhere.

What does self care mean to you?

Creating my best art makes me emotionally very happy, watching movies and quietly thinking. Also going for walks in the forest.

I am very shy and don’t like wearing bright colors! I don’t want to draw attention to myself.
