I relish in your comments that you wish I'd create what I used to. I tell you, without hesitation, that I love when you're disappointed in me. I change with ease and I find myself again in every metamorphosis. I find beauty in failure, excitement in change, and a loud, booming affirmation in criticism. I am boldly alive, my art is unapologetic. My greatest gift is being wild, my truest love is curiosity. Whatever I make I am meant to make, whatever I share is meant for you. I care about how you experience my art, but without attachment or self worth tied to your opinion of it.


"When it's over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms." - Mary Oliver


Like this portal, I jump when I see a new world before me. I ask it to take me in, and in return, I promise to explore it's depths and report back with my discoveries, great and small, all beautiful.


- Your humble reporter of exquisite change and hidden beauty.


P.S. If every coin has two sides, you're the heads to my tails. You give my art dimension. Thank you for jumping with me. πŸ’›


P.P.S. I learned this ripple technique from a very helpful video on YouTube by user PSDESIRE πŸ’›πŸ’›
