Statement
I believe that color in all it's shades and hues should always be "right there in your face" to make you aware of your surroundings and that you are truly alive and part of a wonderful world.I enjoy vibrant and extreme colors, they make me feel alive and in love with every place that I go. Color is "my thing"
