I believe that it isn't "just a picture." A form
of communication more powerful than the word, it's the aesthetic
that captivates; the passion that fuels; the vision that transports;
the mood that seduces; and the emotion that compels.
It's the world as you desire it, the illusion you seek to make
It is my passion to create it for you...
