Artist Statement

I am wild.
I’m untamed.
When I tried to lived a tame life, I never fit in.
.
I am contemplative.
I am an introvert, HSP, INFJ.
And I’m a “glittery introvert” – I can be the life of the party.
.
I have soiled wings.
I think I was born with them.
I balance life and death…that’s how the macabre sneaks into my mind.
.
In life, it’s never about what you first see.
It’s about everything unseen.
There is always more, something deeper, more magical, sacred.
.
A withheld emotion that’s right under the surface.
A nuance that might be missed if you pass by too quickly.
This is what I attempt to capture within my art.
.
There is a sadness with what has passed
Be it through the eyes of a portrait, or the symbols that surround, there is a story.
Something deeper.
A truth that whispers softly from underneath.
It takes stillness and presence to hear it.
