From a young age, I had a very analytical mind, which seemed to interfere with my creativity, though I knew even then, I had an artistic bone...I just had to find it always wished for an artic bone, however felt it was not something that came to me naturally. I even read the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"at a young age. It was not until 2003-2004 that I finally found my outlet, and a way to pour myself into my art, and I finally found a way to express my feelings in a way that I never seemed able to verbalize. So, self taught I poured all of my feelings into my artwork. Then in 2015 I had a traumatic brain injury, which completely turned my world upside down. I had severe loss of coordination, memory loss, confusion,loss of vocabulary, and even difficulty formulating words, making it feel impossible to articulate and communicate, even on the most basic level. It was terrifying, and I felt as if I was being buried alive. When words failed me, art succeeded. And I am no longer invisible.I plan to continue to learn, and to test the boundaries of my talents.
