Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Inka Essenhigh is an American contemporary painter widely known and recognized for her richly colored distorted fables peopled with archetypes, sprites, and anthropomorphized nature.
