What is the inspiration behind your poster design?

I enjoy exploring text and texture and abstract portraiture. My inspiration is the idea of being captured in a moment of coronation.

Why do you love being creative?

She is Her
I am She
Full of Joy and Grief
She Laughs
Her Cries
She Wipes Her Eyes

–Shevaré

I have to focus on being She. She is where creativity and joy are.
