PAGE EVOLUTION

"Although it is a mystery exactly how Dune was born; we believe he was formed. However, we do know that his creative force was expressed at the age of two (2), when he completed his first composition-The Karate Chicken. Since then, he has created for sake of life and happiness.  And even know, the strength and deliberation of his works are to sustain life and happiness; as well as to feel the life force from which he was formed." - Tomas Sustaita, writer, poet, critic

Quotes about this Creative Spirit:

"Dune is not a mere artist; he is a Creative force!"- Dr. Alvia Wardlaw; Curatorial Director of Modern & Contemporary Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

"Dune...you are a hot artist who is not afraid to really get involved in the world and force us to 'see' things"- L.M., Houston, TX

"Dune-Micheli is a force of nature"- Misty Flores

"Dune is a harmonious ball of energy bursting with creativity and spiritual love"- Irene Tango
