“I am a Leo. Most of my nourishment comes from a defiance of conformity.
I was born in, (who cares).
It was decided I would paint and I started just after birth.
I feel comfortable provoking independent definitions, and bask in the enlightened.
Reaching inside our souls is my inspiration.
Take me if you will.
I will gather from all of you what makes Us grow.”
