My first images presented to you will be from my book, "The Me I Never Was." A picture can say a thousand words. My artwork comes to you by my dreams, dream visions and visions from childhood into my adulthood. When you are given enlightenment in your sleep or meditative silence – bring it with you into your conscious, awaken hours.

“When we fail to know who we are in full Truth, we fail ourselves. Deep inside of the self, there is an essence of light called; "the spirit." Reveal the light of spirit inside – and the mind, body, and soul will begin to heal outside. Unveil the spirit within – and you will see clearly.” – FCSH

In 1989 I had a dream vision of this princess lying in an open tomb. As I looked down on her, her eyes slowly opened – and I recognized it was me. As I became one with her, I woke up – and knew I had to create the artwork for this profound dream vision of myself. In 1999 I finished the final work of the image I saw. This vision of myself was a remembrance resurging itself from early childhood visions I received within.

I begged to go with him and he said, "It is impossible for you to be where I am going and it is important that you are where you are right now! I promise I will come for you, be ready when I do return and speak of this to no one, not even your family." I asked him, "When will you come back for me?" And he said, "Very soon… just be ready to leave with me!" I cried in deep sorrow and promised him I would be ready and I wouldn’t tell anyone!
