This is what a dream would look like in paint, poking at your subconscious, evoking emotions that make you smile for no reason.  
Her paintings are a reflection of the beauty that is this creative mind.

Not only does she inject art into our world, she also nurtures the creative soul in her friends…. including me!
Arite is a character, and much like her artwork, she is irresistible.
