CREATION OF A COLLECTION
There is a lot that goes into planning a collection for a show. For me, concepts have been building for years, and sometimes it's hard to narrow down and align ideas. For this upcoming show, I am theming my work around the artist Frida Kahlo's style and reflecting on events in my life. She is a great inspiration to me through her art and outlook. She relied on symbolism, folk art, and her view of reality, even though it may have seemed surreal at times.
"I don't paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality."
Art is a form of therapy, expression, and ultimately connection. I hope to achieve that with anyone who engages with me in my art..Thank you for showing up!
