Sketching someone's features is a deeply intimate process and it bonds me with the model. I get to swim in their expressions and see their features coming to life. I draw their stillness while imagining the movement behind it. Meet a beautiful stranger, a Hawaiian woman I caught a glimpse of when watching last year's … Continue reading Wahine
For those who have been on a spiritual path, the "Dark night of the Soul" is a term that they might not only be familiar with but also an experience that has defined the rest of their lives and the way they relate to the world and themselves. The most challenging and demanding energetically, emotionally, … Continue reading Purging
I have always lived with the feeling that something miraculous is about to happen to me. That at any corner, know or unknown, I will meet with an experience that will have me bewildered.That I am about to do something extraordinary.

The sun painted my walls in a deep cadmium yellow.My mind is restless for weeks now. It travels back and forth between memories, long-lost dreams, people I have met or I am … Continue reading Samsara
The awakened being is a complete stranger to the world.An upsetting force that creates controversies, falls over the edge in almost everyone's eyes but its own.Here to be swallowed up.

Cheers to Life, to Love, to Joy!
I remember my 11th birthday.Or at least, parts of it.Surely, my mind deformed the memories, delivering altered, blurred moments. However, some emotions are bound to stay with me and carry themselves around as a secret identity that I only make available to myself. I was skinny and deeply tanned.
