Art has been a vehicle for deep personal healing and growth. Through my own creative process, I have been working on self-acceptance, unapologetic expression and recovery from the pressure to conform to mainstream society. As a recovering perfectionist with high anxiety and attention deficit issues, I use my art as a way to simply let go of the need to be perfect. I’ve learned to let art happen instead of trying to force it.
My main artistic focus is the digital hybrid – a blend of my digital paintings, original photographs, and snapshots of my physical mixed media paintings. The purpose of combining different snippets of works into one is to capture the fragmented, multifaceted nature of my brain while playing with various mediums in the same work. I find that the outcome is highly stimulating, mood-boosting, and at the very least, thought-provoking.
My philosophy is to use what you’ve got right here and right now to create something new!
