These words are on the artists webpage convey the beauty and intention that this Artist is trying to portray.
“Two very distinct elements are at play here: fine art and fashion”.
“An item should be extraordinarily beautiful”, and
” The curves and symmetry of a woman” are shown exceptionally well in the exquisite paintings and drawings.
“Having the power to magnetise others” is another catch phrase.
“The perception and experience of luxury are deepened and expanded with the intention to raise the vibration of the environment” is the expression that they are trying to convey to the client. This is a very powerful message which is delivered in a very simple, yet beautiful way in their drawings.
