Working alone with silk over the years has allowed me to draw from within myself, to manifest thoughts and feeling as shapes and colours, in many ways it has been a closed private release. Last year in France i worked with a number of people sharing both time and expressive creation.

Am in total awe of the artwork I see posted here and admire the dedicated patience displayed by so many. I'll take baby-steps shall I?
Only my first year of high-school provided an art-teacher and to my…READ MORE
Hi everyone, I got into art for my own personal reasons to help me focus on something and become creative.
