My journey as an artist has been really interesting. Like many, this journey has been an emotional rollercoaster. I think, well I know I'm my hardest critic. Being an human who feel emotions can be a curse and a blessing for artists. Well let me speak for me. I create with my heart (feelings). In the past, if I was feeling down or just unhappy, I could not create. It was a creative block for me. It wasn't until my last show, "The Cursed Crown We Detest" that my friend Nicole (SHOUT OUT: HEY NIKKI :-) challenged me to create when feeling all types of emotions. It was difficult in many ways. I had to stay creative feeling bad, with a forced deadline. If that makes sense. A lot of crying, listening to God and gospel music to pull me through. It helped me face my truth. I just started working on a new collection about dance. So far, I'm in a happy space somewhat and hope to stay in this feeling (lol). The only reason I say somewhat is because that happy space is being challenged with the feeling of "love". The yearn for love, being in and giving it. It's a very personal space to be in because it can cloud your creative process. So far, it hasn't but it's making me realize how much I love LOVE. It's a BEAUTIFUL feeling to feel, if it's true. Two loves I know are for sure: my love of GOD and my love of ART. And not just only the visual art I create but the art of building true and solid relationships (family, friends). Something I value more these days than EVER. I try my best to stay true to love and put it in everything I touch. I thank GOD for walking with me this far and really showing me things. This love began with loving me FIRST. Still a work in progress but I'm not where I was. #necessarygrowth #thankyouFATHERGOD
