“Painting for me is the best escape without leaving my house, a way to convey my projects and project my hopes on canvas.

Hestia Ma’at is my artistic expression of how grateful I am for my experiences living in Virginia for the past four years. I am a single mother and survivor of domestic violence. By relying on my beliefs in the four systems of heaven, space, motherhood, and love, I have grown stronger and am more sensitive, empathic and charitable to others. I have discovered angels in the family and friends who have helped me along the way. I am able to move forward in my life and my care, planning to begin a new phase, starting over, being better in Sarasota, Florida.”
