I make art to allow myself the time and space to process my emotions and life traumas. While making my collages, I achieve a heightened state of being, as I lose all sense of time, worry and stress. My collages take me on a journey. I am inspired by nature, its healing properties and my place within the world. I rely heavily on my intuition while selecting images for a piece. I usually don’t even know what I’m processing while making my works. Once I have all the images together, I understand another part of my story.

Art is a way to process life. It taps into trapped emotions and subconscious thought patterns, bringing peace, serenity and healing to life. My goal as an artist is to bring this self-awareness to the world and encourage others to process their life experiences through art.
