About the Artist
I’m a 27 year old who has been through a great bit. Two brain tumors, abusive relationship, moving a few times growing up due to my father being in the Navy. Whenever I am hurt, lost, or alone, I turn to my art, that one little, small piece of me that I can feel truly safe and complete.
I #LivetoTell that life is hard, it constantly tests you in so many ways. There will be many times where you feel like you have broken or are about to break. But it is not the end. This life, it’s a long road to wisdom and understanding, and sometimes it requires us to lean on the ones that make us feel safe to get through it the worst of it. My art is the one thing that makes me feel completely vulnerable and safe, where I can open up and let all my emotions out without outside influence and judgement. When I wanted to end it all, I threw myself into my art and sought medical help; my art kept me from going over the point of no return.
