"The name of my art show is called "A glimpse into my world" Each piece represents a part of me or my life. i wanted to share my world with visuals and textures. Sometimes its hard for me to convey my life through words. its something i keep private and feel its very intimate, so through my art i'm able to share that without judgement. Being creative is very freeing and i'm happy to share my world with people through this form."
