Hazel’s 3D texture sculpture entitled ‘The Spiral Aloe’ was exhibited at the LASALLE Open House 2019 under the exhibition Art and Design. ​My practice includes a range of mediums; painting, drawing, digital art, photography and to name a few. It imbued by people, event and by my surrounding environment which mostly is reflective of my life. I feel that both life and people are complicated yet related. I see everything as interconnected. Therefore, my approach to creating art is like putting together a puzzle of a structure or foundation of who we are, intimately. I am primarily in painting and digital art. I believe art can have such a tremendous effect on our emotional well-being, and I am really passionate about how art can uplift and inspire.
