The biography and experience of artist Petra Shara Stoor

Petra Shara Stoor is impression and expression; The artist who knows when to let life feed her with its everlasting input and when to just let it all out, breaking every rule of conventionality in the process.

As a native of East Botnia, Finland, she grew up in a rural environment. Close to nature she witnessed the neverending circumambulation of life and death and developed that special eye for details; How there's a metamorphosis in the making everywhere. How Alpha turns Omega only to rise again, entering yet a new circle of existence.
