Hmm I suppose it all started with trauma.. using art as an outlet. Going through many forms of abuse, instability and overall pain I needed to find something to help heal myself. I've discovered in the last few years just how helpful painting could be for helping others, as well as myself, with ptsd, depression, anxiety and happy emotions too. Everyone struggles with their personal demons, I paint to purge emotions, experiences, fears, and ideas alike. It all started with a need to safely yet fully submerge myself in experiencing life and overcoming my own past traumas.
I think what I love most is the feelings and beautiful connections my art pieces bring. I've been blessed to meet some incredible people through my art and hear their stories and feelings. Genuine openness is a true treasure to be gifted for being an artist. So it's definitely my favorite when art touches someones soul or leads to positive connections, especially when it's my art!
Geez, nowadays I've got a lot going on. I vend at markets a few times a month, am behind the scenes IG for The BudShow, collab with other creators in the community, and of course PAINT! Buuut, the biggest project I'm working on right now is the "Unfinished" Trauma Art Show coming March 2021!! I will be a leading artist in the show with my beautiful friend Donna and the fierce Etiquette Crew ladies! Be sure to check out art show page here or click the link below for more info!
