Artist Bio

I have chosen to follow my passion for creativity and design by turning simple everyday items into functional pieces of art. I began my study of art in high school where I took several computer graphics, 2-D Design, and Photography courses. I was nominated as President of the National Art Honor Society which enabled me to combine both of my passions; community service and Art. In college, I was reluctant to give up my creative desires, and I continued to study art as an elective and worked on developing my skills and techniques. I love to experiment by mixing multiple elements of design and creating unique pieces that represent my individual style. I enjoy creating pieces that are not only decorative but also useful. After college, I had the incredible opportunity to travel abroad and see Art of various cultures. When I am not working, or off exploring, I enjoy coming up with new ideas and designs. I have a constant desire to create by combining old techniques and traditions with modern design. For example, I learned how to paint Ukrainian Eggs at age 10, a tradition that was passed down from my mother, who taught me the beautiful art and its cultural meaning. Since living in Singapore, I have used the country’s unique heritage as my inspiration for my originally designed eggs. Bringing in my love for mix-media I have incorporated new elements into my eggs such as rhinestones, Swarovski crystals, and acrylic paint to make my designs even more unique without losing the spiritual and cultural meaning behind them. Every Egg I make takes many hours if not days to complete. And always has the risk of breaking during the blowing out process. I take great pride and care in my work to ensure that every piece I make is a projection of my passion for my work and desire to bring joy to others. Besides eggs, I continue to practice photography, computer graphics, and various multi-media projects in my free time in hopes of sharing my love for creativity and expression with others. I sincerely hope that my designs will bring you much joy and inspire you to come up with your own unique designs. If you would like to know a little more and the backstory behind a particular piece, please feel free to contact me personally. I would love to hear from you! Thank you for your support.
