A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I have been surrounded by art for as long as I remember. Throughout the years I got to wear many hats in the art industry. An artist by nature, an art advisor and creative entrepreneur by profession. Artists give me a unique drive which I call purpose.


My experience as a former director of 4 galleries has enhanced my creative entrepreneurial approach within the art world. Which enabled me to connect artists to international markets, new business models and the market place within itself. 


I'm constantly motivated by the need to tackle challenges within the creative industry by applying the use of innovative business models, technology, whilst being a source of inspiration to artists, creative leaders in general towards a more collaborative and sustainable ecosystem.


"Creative people are curious, flexible,persistent,and independt with a tremendous spirit of adventure"
-Henri Matisse
