Artist • Poet • Storyteller
"My paintings speak of ancient myths, of deserts and half moons.
They speak of yesterday's times, of silences and the winds,
Of suns and labyrinths, of birds and mythical creatures.
They speak of surfaces worn by time, and of the Shaman's drum.
My paintings speak of me."
