(sideways self portrait w/ arms raised in joy)

I held my first pencil in an old house with five grandmas and a magical

garden where stray cats sunned themselves with the laundry,

and mischievous dwarves came out to play

at the stroke of 6 in the evening. 

 

There, my imagination and love for drawing began and steadily grew

with the sweet bat-bitten guavas, star apples,

and fragrant tropical flowers and plants. 

Many years later, animals and plants are still the stars of my work!

thank you for visiting

I hope my drawings bring you as much joy I get in creating them.
