Aja Apa-Soura – “Although I’ve been painting since my age was measured in months (my mom, a toll painter, would give me scraps of wood from her projects, a cup of water, and a brush for me to “paint” with….) I really became serious with it in ’99 during my last years of high school… Sagittarius Gallery, my business, was started in April of 2003 and since then I have been blessed to have over 1000 patrons on 5 continents. I am a self-representing artist who utilizes the internet and social media to connect with patrons from across the world“.

Middle of the night, the world around me at quiet slumber, 75 watt overhead bulb illuminates the studio and glares in blood shot eyes. Maybe mix just a bit more cerulean in. No, Prussian and just a dab of white….Addiction? Obsession….
