To Family

The world needs a sense of unity and togetherness. Family represents that unity well. Be it by bloodline or not, family is and always will be there for you when you're down, lift you up when you're hurt and be a shoulder to cry on, when you need one.

Mother Belle: I created this piece to represent a mother's love. Mother Belle depicts a young mother holding her baby. The baby is also depicted in the carriage in "Timeless Care." I strove to capture her love, her youth and her beauty in this piece.

Harmony with Nature

I create art to see people smile. I strive for a realistic approach to life. In this form, people appreciate the contours, the diversity, the beauty that is Lonnetrix. We all inhabit this planet. Plants breathe carbon dioxide. Humans exhale it. We breathe oxygen. Plants exhale it. We need to embrace the creatures of this world. We could not have one without the other. We all share one planet and should be able to live together in peace, harmony and unity.
