As multidisciplinary artist and fully believer in Art as a healing and empowering tool, I am blessed with the opportunity to design and facilitate the creation of big scale community murals and workshops like Golden and dynamic mandalas, recycling jewelry, colouring experiences with schools and communities. My commitment and the scope of my projects as a professional community engaged artist and muralist made me wordy of the 2021 Peter Honeywell Ottawa Arts Council Award.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My main goal through the creation of my murals or the facilitation of my workshops is to offer each student the opportunity to realize how creative and unique each of them is. There is no good or bad, no right or wrong in art, every creation or way of expression is perfect as it is because it is "our own way to see the world or express our feelings".
I encourage students to be bold, take risks, solve problems In a creative way and empower themselves through the artistic creation processes.

I am a community-engaged artist who believes in murals and art as agents for social change. Murals not just embellish our cities; they foster diversity, inclusion and cultural exchange, and that make our communities richer and stronger.
