I started my journey in the NFT space back in July 2021. I love it so far and it is an avenue for me to showcase my artworks to a wider audience and provide more autonomy for my works!

Tell me something that most people do not know about NFTs
I think NFTs have a negative connotation to many people and they see it as an easy way to make money as my friends often tell me that NFTs are “worthless”. However, NFTs actually provides a platform and tool for artists to build on their existing following by sharing their art to a greater audience and also attain autonomy with their works. The blockchain technology ensures that each of our works cannot be replicated and this is a huge plus point. NFTs provide many different opportunities for people, especially artists and I believe that it still has huge potential!
Moving forward, what’s the direction you plan to take with regards to your NFT collections?
