Since I was a little girl I knew creating was my passion to emotionally connect into a world of my own and to disconnect myself from the gloom in which I lived in at the time. I remember being so young and impressionable felt as if my eyes had huge lenses and all my senses were heighten. I felt and saw everything to a high degree, and how it affected me.
As I got older and still impressionable, I realised I had the ability to take the pain and soften my lenses to tone the imagery as a passing event rather then letting it affect me or repress it. It is only a dull picture I can now sully place without it's raging distress.
I can now exaggerate the decay of an unpleasant event into something beautiful. Feels like magic. The ability and freedom to do so at any given moment creatively becomes my source of therapy in a world I live in. The world as cruel as it can be and yet beautiful for it's native lands and people who continue to make a difference in the world brings a smile and joy.
I step outside and hear the birds, feel and smell the green lush and tall trees around me, And the fresh air nature procures, is my best companion. The inspiration to my art and my spirit.
I continue to use the elements and power to blossom in my art. Doing this, I grow too. That's important to me, to take steps to evolve I allow myself to conquer and challenge any fear that gets in my way and use it to my advantage.
Channeling my emotions into art, is a wonderful journey. An escape and go beyond, feels and is, an adventure to my spirit. It is like magic and story evolving into color as well, is so poetic to me. I'm my own director and producer. When the outside world feels like chaotic muck and at times eerie. I take what is unpleasant and turn into something beautiful.
To make a difference in the world means the whole world to me. When making someone smile and happy with my art, it embraces me with great amount of happiness. I know I'm doing something completely right and good.
