artists’ message
The sparkles that scatter the world are the same sparkle that amass during our lifetime. The blinding glow of love, the sharp glint of pain and sorrow, the twinkle that friendships inspire, and our desire to shine, regardless of our age. Like a kaleidoscope, all these parts make up our beautiful, complicated, and ever-changing lives.
