What would be your message to young girls around the globe?
Never stop learning! Follow your intuition and relate to people that allow you to expand and make you feel good. The change is scary but it allows you to move forward, do not stop looking for the best version of yourself every day.
What social / political issues are the most important to you?
The resistance of patriarchy. As artists, we have the opportunity to take strength from the feminist movement to express ourselves and liberate our bodies and minds. That’s the most beautiful way to fight back.
What keeps you sane in this insane world?
The art as communication. The possibility of materializing an idea or a sensation and being able to share it with people. The process of creation is healing, it is beautiful to learn from the process of others and to show my process to others, it is an act of love.
What do you see as your biggest challenge?
To improve and learn different techniques while still enjoying the creation process. Also generate content that helps the feminist movement.
How did you get into 3D animation?
The career I studied is related to the world of digital art. That, added to the great amount of hours that I dedicate to learn on my own, led me to introduce myself and improve continuously.
“The world of 3D is huge. It is beautiful to see how artists manage to manipulate computers to the point of generating their own styles. The technique and the concept are equally important.”
