Silpa Bhirasri: sculptor

Hi there. We are on vacation from September 5th, until September 19, 2016. But the Artist Birthday Series continues! Albeit, much shorter. :)

Thank you so much for your continued interest in this project. When we return from our magical, mystery excursion...I'm sure there will ever-so-interesting be stories to be told. 

Wishing all the best of everything beautiful, delicious, and good-smelling to you.
