“It’s not about what you get, it’s about who you become.”

Expressing myself through art, even in my mindless doodles, fills my soul. It is important that every aspect of my life enriches not only my spirit, but others as well. The day I create a collection or piece that multiplies positivity, love and empowerment, is the day I reach my highest of dreams.
