My art is my diary opened up for the world to see.
I am recreating my life's story.
"Life itself is an interesting experience, one in which I explore constantly. Although another person can relate, each individual life - regardless of physicality or ability - is unique to that individual and can only be truly experienced through their own eyes. My art reflects my life experiences – my struggles, triumphs, and everything in between. My art is my diary opened up for the world to see and I am recreating my life’s story."
