“...art is why I get up in the morning, but my definition ends there, you know it doesn’t seem fair that I am living for something I can’t even define, and there you are, right there, in the mean time…” -Ani Difranco

Making art is, for me, not only a means of expression and creativity, but a therapeutic release. From the hair mosaics I make on my shower walls, to the paints on my canvas, to the charcoal on my paper, art is my reason for being and breathing. Painting at times is a struggle that leaves me feeling stuck, challenging me to overcome the issues I have with it. Drawing is a much more uplifting experience for me. My relationship with the two mediums and their relationship with each other are analogous to life’s struggles and triumphs. It is a complex continuum allowing for freedom and growth, criticism and frustration, struggling and learning, and at times is difficult to understand. Life is art. Art is my life.
