Who is your muse?
Anyone who is in front of me when I create. To capture the true essence of a human being is my passion.
What is beauty to you?
A pure heart and a clean mind.
When do you feel at your most beautiful?
When I’m in my heart. That is, when I create art and don’t really think about myself.
Which place makes your soul feel at home?
India.
What do you like the most about yourself?
My innocence and that I still see the beauty in people and in life, even though I have had a hard time.
What do you like the least about yourself?
Every time when I get stuck in my ego, feeling guilty for myself and not being open minded when it comes to interacting with other people.
What was the last book you read?
Bonjour Tristesse by Francoise Sagan
What is your biggest regret?

That I didn’t appreciate or saw the beauty in people when they were close to me, or when I treated people badly, even though I know that’s a part of the journey. You cannot act beyond your consciousness, but sometimes it feels bad that I didn’t.

What is the quality you most appreciate in other people?
Honesty and an ability to see the beauty in life. Everyone who is in their heart is beautiful. No matter what. In the heart there is no room for greed, anxiety, hate or jealousy. There is only pure life and love.
What is the quality you most appreciate in yourself?
My childlike heart. When I’m not in my ego, I can be equally excited about eating my favourite breakfast as about travelling the world. And I experience the same bubbling sensation in my heart when I’m in my own company as with friends and family. I love how the small wonders of life hit me as an explosion inside every day and this is a true blessing.
If you had to describe yourself in only three words, what would they be?
Innocent, alive, raw.
