The Chameleon

For me, she is like a brightly
colored chameleon.

She is constantly changing,
like her art.

She is always looking for the harmony
that you can find in the Nirvana.

A harmony that shines through in her style,
enchanting everyone.

Her positive, explosive energy can inspire you;
enlighten you like the blinding light of the sun.

She makes magic with her warm colors,
and lets us play with our creativity.

For me, her style is like a motor
that generates my art.
