Why do certain stories stay hidden? It’s always that damn inner voice screaming, “NO WAY ARE YOU GOING TO TELL.” DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO STOP LIKING YOU? DO YOU WANT TO FEEL EMBARRASSED?
My hidden stories are the reason I became an artist.
What I create exists because of my journey through PTSD. Thankfully I found two great helpers and for years therapy became my full time job. After a lot of screaming, crying and insanely scribbling with red and black crayons I was finally able to heal. Life can still be difficult to navigate. Nothing is 100%.
The hidden stories in my creative work are subtle, not a welcome to “my real life.” There is no reason to impose my psyche on the viewer. One of the joys of creating is to give back by letting you the viewer make a personal connection to experiences in your life.
