In a post on Facebook, Ky expressed the inspiration behind her series.

“Every action is a first thought. Before you realise all things let’s learn to visualize His good arrangements before putting it in shape…My hair in the shape of a hand are the expression of my thoughts, which is so strong that she decided to materialize even before the action has passed.“*

Ky’s artistic creations are awe-inspiring. Just check out this look:
