Tama-a-riki (a child of God)

A design with no meaning has no spirit, no life, cold and dead. It must have a connection, generate conversation, inspire others and motivate. Not just a drawing but a collection of your experiences, feelings, strengths and weeknesses. As an artist all I do is take what is already there, arrange, shape and put form to who you all ready are.
