How could that be, you think? My mind is still not ready to accept these gorgeous works of art as paintings. All I can wonder is how can anyone be as talented as this.

What’s the secret? How is this even possible, my mind’s got several questions.

The models he’s used for these paintings are all young, fashionable, tattooed and rebellious. Moreover, the models come with a carefree, and provocative attitude on their own.

I’m a true blue gypsy at heart. YES is my buzzword. Planning a travel adventure? You can always count me in. Treat me to good food, and you can be my friend forever. Fashion has been my guilty pleasure ever since I was a little girl who loved poring over the sparkling jewels and opulent gowns of Disney princesses. Keeping fit and showing love to my body is what keeps me feeling good. I LOVE those looooong discussions and stimulating experiences concerning spirituality, religion, and things beyond – the explorer in me is forever fascinated by these. A neuroscientist-turned-writer-turned-online marketer, my little 5-year-old career has seen me wearing multiple hats. In my world, there are no rules chiefly because I ain’t got no motivation to make or break ‘em.
