Artist Statement

Awakening can be interpreted in many ways, as with all art right? But I personally created this piece to depict the nature of awakening to a deeper consciousness behind the ego or “thinking mind”. So in essence this piece is about choosing love over fear, and in doing so, embracing all things, as we are all connected by our shared consciousness. I am an advocate for generational trauma/trauma healing and mental health-related issues. My artwork is my platform for speaking on these subjects and expanding their reach. I am committed to expanding the reach of these topics, especially in my local community of Ypsilanti and the surrounding areas so I thank you for your consideration and time!
