create...beautiful things out of the most mundane mediums
Gaman: to endure the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity
I found my muse - it's my family's firsthand pilgrimage through this literal and figurative desert that has taught me so much about the power of beauty and creativity.
Creating beautiful things from simple yet unexpected materials is in my blood.
Art was a saving grace for my family and I hope to carry on that tradition.
'Gaman' means to endure the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity.
