I Love to watch Nature left alone, and I Love to celebrate people. I can see and hear, true Beauty, Love and Goodness . Each day being a New day I would arise and seek life, at a young age I left home seeking , Along my journey i discovered many lost, and many broken. I always loved to bring kindness and hope to the hopeless always believing in what the future holds, knowing everyone is special and everyone needs to be loved, in a pure way....

Artist Bio : as people said I reminded them of leading Artists, I needed to see if what these leading Artist wrote in their Bio was true to myself, and here is what i found, I have an :
Impressionistic Modern movement just as Picasso who is Spanish, that awaits inside of me , capturing the optical effects of light conveying the passage of time, with pure intense color, abandoning traditional perspective, living completely true to my inner self, works being referred to as a Claude Monet' (french) wet on wet technique using soft brush strokes to modern art, other works relate to (french) August Renoir featuring the emotional attributes, without former schooling rendering expressionism , further being related to Rembrandt connecting what once was disconnected, capturing the Italian avant'-garde movement to Futurism, painting with rhythmatic pulsating qualities to abstract expressionism and futurism even in a single painting, defying the impossible with the possible, the unknown with the known, being challenged by living every moment on the tip of the wave, creating Surreal works of Art. as I discover the gift that lives inside of me, I am awakened to desire more.,
