Where does your passion for fine art originate from?

My upbringing had everything to do with my love for fine art. My family fostered it, instilled my passion in fine art. I grew up breathing art. Our life revolved around a combination of fine art, ballet, opera and classical music.

You are the brand ambassador of the NFT social platform, Artemis Market. Tell us about your first NFT series “Remember Me Like This”.

I’m delighted to have been asked to be the First Brand Ambassador for Artemis Market. It’s a very exciting new NFT social platform, in fact, it is the world’s first decentralised NFT mobile social platform. As the world continues to move towards crypto currency trading, NFTs is fast becoming an integral part of a new asset class for collectors. Moreover, NFT art is fresh, innovative, creative. I am excited to see what else is to come.

Artemis will be the first platform in the world launching on a mobile platform with a social community such as Instagram all in one place. When Artemis offered to mint my first NFT series as a means to celebrate our partnership, I decided to capture that moment in time as the “art girl” and pay homage to one of my favourite pop artists of all time, Warhol. The result was my four NFTs, entitled Remember Me Like This.
