Artist STATEMENT

"Hand over my own heart I ask How are you sweetheart?"
Where are we going now? What would you like me to do? Art making is part of my earliest beginnings and the start of a spiritual practice that has very long roots. It is more than my livelihood it is my life, and my way of being.
