About Me

“An artist’s duty, as well as I’m concerned is to reflect the times…I choose to reflect the times and situations in which I find myself, that to me is my duty…” – Nina Simone

I create for myself and that’s not selfish
Jarimindmap
I’m a multidisciplinary visual artist, a self-observer, a witness to myself.
