I create to connect with myself.
I create to share the contents of my mind with others
I create to feel alive and aligned
I never know how my pieces will look or what they will be until they're done. I often gaze at them afterward and allow them to inform me of what I truly feel, think, or need in the moment. I've found that how my art looks is not nearly as important as how I feel during the process of creating it. Art, for me, is about healthy expression and survival. It is what's keeping me alive.
