“I express the soul’s path to freedom from bondage. I explore the transformative power yielded via relationship with the Divine while thriving brilliantly through visual messages of deep abiding love.
Combining realism with abstraction, I seek to bring clarity where there was once confusion. Light and details are placed within shadows, emulating the power that pain has to transform, reveal and enlighten. Emerging woodgrain reflects the many layers of being human and the seasons in which life brings. I explore relationship with the Divine Creator using mixed media, oil & airbrush, which keeps me connected to my urban graffiti art roots.” Shen
