I grew up in a Catholic home. I believe in God, so I consider myself religious and spiritual, but I don't think I fully want to follow the Roman Catholic church. So many things feel constricting, as if the way to achieve holiness is to follow a single dirt path that is clearly not the one for you, but you must follow it just because you have been told to do so. There's a feeling of contempt and complacency where I fail to grow in the spirit. I see religion and spirituality as a personal matter, and as much as the church is there to guide you, I do not feel guided by it. My highly curious and introspective nature urges me to look beyond devotion, back into myself and find God's power within me.
This piece is a cathartic expression of my unwillingness to pray, yet finding comfort in religion. I don't know who I am to God yet. I don't know who God is to me, either.

Artist/Illustrator from Panama City, Panama.
My art is centered around themes of femininity, religion and spirituality, self-image, and nature. Each artwork is an expression of my experiences, as well as a reflection of my thoughts, ideas, and emotions.
I also love experimenting with different mediums, so often I'll mix ink, graphite, color pencil, watercolor, markers, among other materials. The opportunities are endless.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy~
