Painter and Renaissance man Dougie Padilla explores the art of meditation.

“I am trying to create a place where the soul feels nurtured and where our sense of enchantment comes back to life, so that you walk in and look at my paintings, you look at my work, you’re in this place, and you feel that once again the world is in fact a magical place.”
