What has been your proudest moment as an artist/creative?

I am working towards a book- Malhaar, it’s a collection of poems, prose and spoken words,  the release of it will make for one of my most proud moments. I think being able to have been disciplined enough throughout the process – to write the book and see it through completion is what will make me very proud !

How do you define love?

I guess there is no set definition in my mind, love to me is something ethereal. Hard to define it!

How do you make time to create?

I work full time at a bank and so weekdays I am neck deep into my work, on weekends is when I read and write.

What social issues do you care about most?

Women, Trans and LGBT rights

Who are your influences/inspirations?

People who have seen and felt a lot in life, their stories inspire me. The empathy that I see people have inspires me.

What message do you want to spread with your art?

Message of self belief.
