"Sandra suffers from a genetic degenerative disease that causes her bones to deteriorate. Doctors told her at a young age that she would only have 20 years tops to walk on her own two feet. She went from walking and limping as a child to using crutches and from crutches to wheelchairs. The disease is now causing pain in her upper limbs. She can no longer draw because of this condition. It is risky for doctors to perform surgeries on her given the condition of her bones.

Her spine has double scoliosis of more than sixty degrees each curve, like an’S’ shape. She could potentially go up to a cardiac arrest or respiratory failure, or maybe a perforation in the heart or column through her ribs at any moment. She would have to undergo emergency surgery if that happens. And if she manages to survive, she may never be able to use her legs. Since the recovery will be so long that the damaged muscles and tendons will not support it. Sandra also suffers from frequent headaches due to a bad fit in the skull. She can only take pills derived from morphine to endure the pain for the time being.

To her, I replied: "I'm so sorry Sandra. If I thought I had it hard, I can only imagine what you had to go through. My mum has lymph node cancer and you reminded me of her. She was terribly mistreated by her family and my dad's family, pretty much everybody judged her but nobody really knows her or even tried to. I know my mother, she's the kindest woman and she's faithful, loyal, loving, and caring. She gave all her life to my brother and me and all she gets is mistreatments. I sometimes feel so useless because I wish I could help more.""

STATE-OF-THE-ART PRINTS

" Every art print here is an art object made to perfection.
They are exact replica of the originals and it's my absolute honour to be sharing my creations with you. 

Top-tier printing technology

A Giclée print is a high quality archival inkjet print that has a 80 years life span. The word Giclée (pronounced ‘Jee-Klay’ with a soft J), comes from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spurt, or spray".

Archival fine art paper

The robust heavyweight paper (310gsm) used has a strong mottled texture, giving the artwork a handmade crafted feel. It creates strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast and the edges have high resistance to fraying.

Sustainable printing

The printing service used is completely carbon neutral. This means they offset all carbon emissions that their business is responsible for. This is very important to me when it comes to putting out any products.
