Anaya is a variation of the original name Anaiah, meaning 'God answered'. Though this had absolutely nothing to do with this artwork at the time.

Again, not uncommon in these earlier years where I am obviously trying to find my feet, I'm not quite sure where I found this name, or why I even used it. But I do know how I was feeling when I created her.

Have you ever felt that you just wanted to flow with the wind and make the most of all the opportunities out there but you just seem to be continually boxed in? Well now, 8 years later, I know I am the only one who built those walls around myself... and I'm the only one who can break them down.

Be bold, be sexy, be fierce and escape your own confines.

I have learnt and grown so much over my 45+ years; The good, the bad, the ridiculous... It's all relevant, because at one point or another, in some way or another, there are always roads taken, accomplishments, fears and obstacles along the way, which most of us have (or will have) in common. 

I'd really love to share my journey with you, and through my artwork, embolden a body of strength and character, an invigorating empowering force, within each and every one of you as you move forward. Join forces with me!
