Sustainability of our planet is a complex issue which I am constantly inspired by. With my art I try to raise awareness about issues that will affect future generations if change is not implemented.

Featured Artist Francesca Busca

What inspires me? It would be easier to say what does NOT! Everywhere I look, every consideration I make, is a source of inspiration.
