Along side this quest, I've embarked on a relentless search for the freedom to create, an unshackling of my artistic expression. The desire has been to swing open the doors of my personal boundaries, inviting creativity as unadulterated play to birth an embodied experience of unbound consciousness.

These artists sought an authenticity of creation that extended beyond the collective mind.
