Title: Moments in Time
Description: The moments in this picture are to be treasured and embraced - and frozen, perfect and crystal clear, inside our memories and hearts.
Title: Let Your Thoughts Fly Free
Description: I think that butterflies symbolise being in the moment through their beauty and symbol of life and luck. I drew a hand reaching out to them to represent their freedom and the feeling of reflection or happiness.

This journey includes putting up many different facades in different experiences to feel safe and excepted. This is shown through the vast range identities captured in this piece.
