My style is very unique and influenced by all of my adventures to exotic places. I am most inspired by nature and I love the raw beauty of all the natural resources that can be used for art. I have a huge fascination with different ethnic groups and indigenous people. How they adorn themselves using what is available to them in their respective environments and the techniques and traditions that they use to create their beautiful designs.
