Creation was always a part of my life as a child; however, over the years, life took me in a different direction. In 2013, I was working a 9-5 with no time for creative energy, only decisive decisions and concrete outcomes, when my life was turned upside down. I was involved in a major motor vehicle accident that, among other injuries, left me with a traumatic brain injury. The following years, consisted of nothing but doctors’ appointments and sleep, an existence drained of passion or energy. Eventually one day, at my lowest point, a doctor suggested I start painting again. I fell back in love. Creation gave me a way to find the energy of the world, the ability to see the beauty and the inspiration to continue into the unknown.
Today, my drawings and paintings combine my creative passion with my instinctive decisiveness to create unique geometric and abstract art in a way that makes one stop and take a moment. For that is my goal, to create something that reminds others to just take a moment and be thankful you are still here, in this beautiful, creative, inspirational world.
