What do you like about Mosaic/Ceramic:
Mosaic is a type of art that helps me to focus, it really help me to understand the outcome to have patience during the process while working on a mosaic project. It also being calmness and some stressful moments that I enjoy, that helps the brain exercise to solve the problem.

What has been the impact of Mosaic/Ceramic in your life:
The impact that mosaic had made in my life is the language of the art world. It really brought a whole new thing to my world, I can still remember the first 2 words I heard and learnt to say “FUGA and ANDAMENTO”. I even still smile while I am writing this. Mosaic also taught me the value of colours and see the difference of it, irrespective the saturation or the shade or toning of colour of that area to be mosaic, it needs each other to make and bring out the beauty of it. And so its in each of our lives together we make something beautiful.

What is your vision for your artisanal/business future:
I would love to finish my pastry courses and collaborate the two, to have a platform to showcase my work in my own bakery and space for other artisan to show their work. One thing I would also like to do is give back to my community to empower the younger generation with skill knowledge.
