I Create With Love
My art is my way of sharing my self with you. I hope that you will feel the love and enjoyment that I feel in my art. I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. It is my language of expression. I was born in Ethiopia and moved to the USA. I am part American and part Ethiopian. I am a child of two worlds. My art is my expression of always trying to bring my worlds together, East and West. The world is one. We are one. Thank you.
