Description by the artist
On earth she was the foreign barbarian, for the Romans refractory to rules, free thinker, favorite food philosophy from which she elaborates a personal way of life. From a very young age she chooses, at the cost of her life, to be a citizen of God’s world, it is from there that she comes today with earthly exuberance femininity and spirituality sealed to make her holiness ethereal and present, she plies the sea to dissolve storms and bring back stillness.
