For me, creating ART has become symbolic of a completely destroyed heart that is capable of being repaired with time, extra patience, lots of love and room for growth. When I lost my son Steven unexpectedly on 7/20/19 I had no idea how I would get through and put the pieces of my new life back together. I started by creating the PIECES OF ME collection. This collection is a reflection of a broken heart at different stages of healing. A reflection of how complicated yet beautifully broken they still are. Broken hearts are filled with so much love...love that was once poured into someone who is no longer here. That love just builds up every second of every day. That love needs somewhere new to go; to flow. Maybe your story looks different...maybe you too lost a loved one, maybe you have been through something traumatic and are working on healing. Healing looks different for us all but somehow, someway we can all relate to feeling broken.
I hope that every single piece of my art is viewed at as inspiration and motivation for you to keep finding the beauty in LIFE despite the heartache you may have endured or are enduring; LIFE is still beautiful!
