It is a visual representation of her inner desire to show people what goes on in her head as well as her desire to stand up, stand out and show people that she is capable of creating whatever her mind conceives, and at whatever size she conceives it."
"Their food is fantastic to say the least! This summer they are opening their 13th location in downtown San Diego on the corner of First and Broadway and they’ve hired me to create a permanent installation of original paintings for this new location."
