All Stringer Things
I create because creation has the power to help others / inspire & express alternative realities. Because I like to communicate. Because it is important.
I am self-employed, have six cats, want to go scubadiving on my next adventure abroad and am most interested in creating art work that contributes positively to its intended community.
