I’ve recently read the phrase ‘elementally human’ and it made me wonder… I felt his was the perfect (and very beautiful) model for what I had in mind. The image is full of contradicting elements and contrasts and the model perfectly (for me) expresses the human condition – wings on one side and despair and possibly shame on the other.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
