My motto, “See the Unseen” is realized thru symbolism, the language of my art. As a Magical Realist, I faithfully represent the seen exterior, thereby revealing an unseen spirit that symbolizes uplifting qualities of human nature. The titles and stories are based on the symbolism of the subject.
Tortoise lived in a land called Comfort Zone, and was happy staying home. One day Butterfly came by asking if he wanted to play. Tortoise was afraid to come out of his shell, but said ‘Thank you kindly for the invitation’. Butterfly replied ‘Oh, but there’s so much delight you don’t want to miss. Life is short, trust me on that’. Tortoise thought about it, then agreed to go with Butterfly who lifted him to new heights, and showed him life from a different perspective. Tortoise couldn’t thank Butterfly enough. Thrilled to have found courage, he packed up and left the Comfort Zone for many joyful adventures in the Realm of the Unknown.
