Welcome to my world. It’s a peaceful world. A world of loud and silent spaces. I am expressing my vision of culture fully inter-locked but not bound to any end or beginning. Soulful, rich and seductive and yet spiritual enactments placed on surfaces of textures selected. Many of my works are just thoughts that show up at the right time and thus, I am ready with the tools that make feelings come forward. I don’t know how it will turn out. I only know what it tells me to do. And when it comes from this source, all I ask is for it to continue coming. A relationship with this Creator that does not ask for a lot from me, only just to allow it to flow. I am truly grateful to my Higher Power for this gift, for which I share with this world as we know it.
