THE ART OF 

freedom

At 23, we believe we have all life ahead of us. We make plans, start our careers, we’re energized and aspire to realize our dreams. But for me, at 23, I got hit by a very hard disease. Over time, it took possession of my whole body, making me more and more sick. All the systems in my body have been affected. At 26, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and co-infections and had to go to the U.S. to get my diagnosis and treatments to try to save my life.

The extreme emotions that I had to live through all my years of illness eventually drove me to a chasm. I did not always know how to say everything that was happening inside of me and I felt misunderstood and completely alone in the world until the day I felt that I was on the verge of exploding. It is for this reason that one evening in July 2017, I decided to free myself and, through abstract art, finally make my voice and my story heard.

I began to find comfort and motivation through my works. And it is through art that I finally managed to express myself and let out all the pain, anxiety, isolation, anger, misunderstanding, but also the joy, hope, faith, happiness and recognition that I have carried with me all these years. And that’s where all my paintings were born!
