Artwork Description: My artwork is a series of linocut prints and acrylic pieces. These artworks show fluidity and flow and are linked with spirituality (Kundalini) and the element of water. In 2016, I awakened my Kundalini, through Reiki energy. This powerful energy helped me enhance my creative flow, where I received intuitive downloads to help me create my art.
