Artist Statement

I started to engage in creative explorations as a healing tool in my Traumatic Brain Injury recovery journey. Over the years I completed various classes, including watercolour print makings.

Since last fall I dedicated more time to explore my creative energy and listen to where it will lead me.

As a passionate writer I love to use words or poetry for inspiration. You can even see some words who are still visible in my creation after I added colors, textures or stitching.

Why did I decide to follow these emerging creative talents?

I believe my creativity always led me to my truth and to some amazing discoveries about myself. When I am in the flow, I am in my own bubble stepping away from my physical discomfort or my uncertainty. When I am exploring my creativity, I am free, I am curiously and avidly living in the now.

I love to create with bold colors, nature elements, book pages I torn apart, black ink, treads, pastel crayons or markers..

I have a very versatile style however one thing that is constant is my love of small ripped pieces of color papers some of which I created myself.

This emerging gift nourishes my soul and it is a source of JOY in my life. I adore surrounding myself with beauty and by creating art I envision sharing this passionate desire to bring more beauty in life with others who appreciate my gifts.
