describe what you do -

Are you interested in the unseen?  What does spirituality mean to you?
Unseen spiritual activity is all around us.

Tell us about an art piece that you have created that resonates with you the most -
I find, at this point of my life in art making I like most of my work, if I do not like something I change it.  The most important aspect of work, is to think more through visual means.

An item of clothing -
I love clothes, always, since I was a child.  They must be comfortable and have texture, layers, shape, sometimes color, but always depth.

Isabel Toledo said that “Fashion is every woman’s language, every women’s tool.”: Interview Magazine in 2014, on the occasion of the introduction of her line of clothing for Lane Bryant.  I like that.
