Hobbies
Reading books and listening to music are my favourite pastimes when I’m not doing other artistic stuff. I enjoy most cultural pursuits, classical, modern and contemporary. Travelling is a great pleasure and I wish I could do more of it. Visiting Galleries and Museums is enjoyable and I like walking around cities and the countryside. I love camping, campfires and magic. I’m interested in philosophy and religion and consequently; social justice and fair play. I believe that everyone can learn and heal through creative growth.
