What defines your style?
What makes me to be inspired for my latest art is the state of mind to be mindful. The practice to observe every moment and understand the power of now.
What are your most commonly used materials?
I always wanted to embody ever-lasting edginess to my inspiration so I design pieces from natural gold and precious stones.
