Holy Toledo! Hadn't checked my DA in a week or so and I come on today and POOOF! I find all this insane amount of comments, faves, watches and llama badges everywhere! Thank you everybody for your support of my work! It was alot of blood, sweat and lots and lots of tears to create this body of work and there is still alot more to do! This semester I plan on learning to make paper and then making sculptures out of it , which will open up a lot of avenues for my concepts. Stay tuned cuz while it takes me a while to make this stuff I hope it will be worth it in the end!
  • Mood: Wow!

Current Artists Statement:


Carl Jung once said, “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” The darkness Jung describes refers to those emotions and thoughts that are often unwanted but unavoidable, such as anger, depression, and resentment. They are a part of what makes us human, but they are also parts of ourselves we often deny.
In my art work, I’m attempting to bring those feelings to the surface. I offer no answers to why these emotions exist or how to overcome them when they surface, because of my own periodic struggles with these emotions. I created this body of work because I wished to understand myself better to pull to the surface the ugliest parts of myself and examine them. As this process progressed, I became aware that this struggle was not just my own.
This body of work is meant to ask viewers questions about their own struggle, their own “darkness”. Failure to understand ourselves can lead to failures in our lives. But by acknowledging the worst parts of ourselves, our greatest virtues become more apparent and more precious.
