Artist Statement:

“Finding the inherent, simplistic and magnificent beauty that resides in all things around and in us, therefore, daring to explore the unknown and capturing that beauty. Beauty simply represents the truth and the celestial power of purity& love. It elevates, awakens and transcends our spirits connecting us with our divine being, present but hidden, in all of us.”
