// MAKING IMPERFECTIONS COOL AGAIN //
Some Words About My Process
My work, like my life, is an evolution. That whole one step forward, two steps back kind of thing. Over and over again I find doing things the hard way first teaches me to do it better (not perfect) the next. I'm daily learning how to deal with change and more importantly how to welcome all the feelings that come along for the ride. For example, there are forces outside our control that cause change in our lives without our consent, and then there are decisions we make because we welcome the change. Neither one is to be judged right or wrong / good or bad, but simply accepted.
Raised in the south, my work is continuously pushing back against the values I was raised with in hopes of finding answers. I hold on to certain values which were instilled in me from a young age, but there's still a lot I find lacking. I'm always trying to get back to that kid in me that would pick up a pencil because it was fun. And now having children, I am wonderfully reminded of how much fun it can be to just start making a mark without knowing where it will lead next. Or, to put it another way, to trust your gut requires years of experience and the testing of ones soul.
