Tell us a little bit more about you and your personal lifestyle.
I am a digital artist with Dutch ancestry who was born in Sweden and has had an extremely adventurous life that has molded who I am now. I've discovered my passion for using technology to create art, which has given me the freedom to express myself in interesting and captivating ways. Each piece of my art is truly unique since it reflects my unique experiences and viewpoint.

Right now, my girlfriend and my dog, who fill my life with so much love and joy, live with me. My partner is my biggest supporter and motivation, and my furry friend is my constant company. We live a basic yet meaningful lifestyle that is centered on our common loves and interests.

Despite the ups and downs, I've experienced in my life, I've learned to value the route that got me to this point. I'm thankful for the events that have molded me and helped me realize that being a digital artist is what I was meant to do.

My brand aesthetics and personal style can be described as surreal, dream-like fashion, and thought-provoking. I aim to create art that evokes emotions and inspires contemplation in the viewer.
Do you have an essential philosophy that guides you in your creative expression?
My philosophy in creative expression is to always push the boundaries of what is possible, to never be satisfied with what I have created, and to always strive to improve and evolve as an artist.
What do you believe is a key element in creating a good composition?
A key element in creating a good composition is a clear and concise message, balanced elements, and harmonious use of color.

Some of the tools I use to create my distinct style of an artwork include digital painting software such as Photoshop and Procreate, as well as 3D modeling software like Blender.
What do you predict about the future of this kind of art? Where would you like to see it go?
I predict that digital art will continue to grow and evolve in the future, and I would love to see it become even more mainstream and widely accepted as a valid form of artistic expression
What are the key differences between creating art in the physical and digital worlds?
The key difference between creating art in the physical and digital worlds is the versatility and scalability offered by digital media. In the physical world, there are limitations to size and materials, whereas, in the digital world, the only limitation is your imagination
What sort of message do you want to convey with your work as an artist or creator?
As an artist, I want to convey a message of hope and inspire people to think outside the box and to never stop exploring and growing as individuals, I grow every day and will never be fully learned.

Doing art that explores the themes of identity and self-discovery, and I am also in the early stages of planning a virtual art exhibition in the metaverse for 2023. Also, some really cool artworks for fusion restaurants and artists and a lot more. 
What was the most surreal moment you ever experienced since you began your journey as an artist?
The most surreal moment has been when I finally decided to really put a lot of time into doing art and doing what I love that was when life started to go my way. If people just start to do what they love and believe in themselves, positive things will happen for them. 
How does color influence you or how does it affect your designs while creating art?
Color plays a crucial role in my work, as it has the power to evoke emotions and set the mood for the piece. I often use vibrant and surreal but obvious color combinations to create an otherworldly but recognizable feel in my art.
What do you see as the future of art in the metaverse?
I see a bright future for art in the metaverse, as it offers a whole new level of immersion and interactivity for both artists and viewers. We are just at the beginning of an era.

Mainly on Instagram right now, but my website launches this February with art, sculptures, album covers and NFTs, and a lot more.
