For someone who has struggled with positively overcoming the stresses of life, art has been a crucial outlet for me. Creating has been a way for me to release any negative energy, ground myself, get lost in my creativity, and for a moment, forget the injustices of the world. Art has allowed me to rediscover myself, reinvent myself, and surprise myself.
Like life, art isn't perfect; it can change suddenly and it always works out in the end. Art is subjective, yes, but like life, given the right frame of mind, art can be appreciated and respected for what it is. Art is about being genuine and vulnerable. Art is an expression of the soul and I hope that my art speaks to you in that way.
