I create visuals for MulaZine based in Singapore where I mainly take photographs, BTS, and art direction for videos/content. Besides that, I’m a freelance illustrator and make handcrafted wearable art & goodies at @nika.designs ~
Why do you do what you do and how do you convince people that you love what you do?
Waking up every day and realizing that I’m doing something I truly love & enjoy with zero regrets — despite the hardships and failures. That’s why I do what I do, it’s basically food for my soul. That emotional rollercoaster ride while doing something you love? YES. I believe that when you’re being true to yourself & you do something wholeheartedly, people will be convinced. Your work speaks, it just shows.
What’s your birth chart and which one do you resonate most with?
Gemini Sun, Taurus Moon & Libra Rising. Honestly, I can’t choose… some days I’m a whimsical & curious Gemini, some days a stubborn & ambitious Taurus, and some days I’m just a calm Libra gal.
What’s your best skill, and one skill that you wish you had?
I think my best skill is a mix & matching tacky stuff and making them look aesthetically pleasing. Wow, honestly I wish I could sing like for real.
What’s a quintessential signature you that many can be familiar with?
My quirkiness and laughter. But I get pretty serious when it comes to working.
How did you get to where you are now and what were some of the fall backs that you had to go through?
Perseverance, determination, and faith. I did pretty badly for O’levels and that’s when I realized that it’s time to buck up and give my all to everything that I do. Eventually, it brought me to where I am now. There are people who still question my choices and there are days where I doubt myself and feel insecure but I guess those are also a driving force for me to want to do well and be a better individual every day.
What’s your favorite photo in your gallery and why?
A photo of my cat, Meier. He looks so cute and funny here, this has been my lock screen for the longest time.
What’s your pet peeve?
People who do not have basic manners, like saying “thank you”.
Describe to us what your ideal collaboration and client is. Also, who would you want to work with?
An ideal collaboration would be working with clothing brands like Paloma Wool, 3 Women, or Story mfg!! Such a dream. Also, I’d love to work with my IG gal crush Maria Bernad. Unrealistic, but I truly love her content and her brand.
