nude series

 

This series was made during a difficult period in my life. What helped me move through that dark and solitary time was writing poetry on a daily basis and going to my weekly life drawing sessions. Art and poetry became the medicine
I needed to express what I couldn’t otherwise. For years I kept this body of work hidden, like a dark secret, like depression itself. At times
I wondered: How could such joyful, fun and celebratory drawings be born out of such stuggles? Now, I know that the true nature of my spirit spoke through them, the creative spirit, the one we need to nurture
to open our heart to life.
