Description/ Statement:

“During the process of creating. I am able to indulge in a world of whimsy, escapism, curiosity and magic. I escape to a world of my own imagination. Fueling the need for me to explore expression of emotions, from love, euphoria, joy, bliss, mischief, fear, terror and despair. The process of creation is invaluable to me- a form of therapy, absolutely.  To watch the process unfold, the life soul, appear, taking on a life of its own. It draws me in, it saved my life”
