About me

It all happens fast: a left-click, a short glimpse, and a silent nod. In just a few seconds you are either convinced to move on or scroll down for a closer read. I write for these moments. I write for a public with an appetite for art and visual culture. I write with the belief that complex ideas can be conveyed clearly and engagingly to a broader audience. A seemingly simple task, yet hard to achieve: how to make readers engage and take action, to think, to comment, to share, and to subscribe? I am an art historian with over eight years of experience in writing, editing, and lecturing on art and visual culture. My strength lies in making deeper connections that pierce beneath the surface of cultural journalism. In my essays, I move from the visual to the written by transforming the colours and complexities of a work of art into the shades of meaning and the sounding pulses of the word. Through my photography, I create visual essays that capture that brief moment of reality that convey the ineffable uniqueness of each place and story.
