Shift perspectives! ⇽

Creativity has never been harder during this pandemic, however there have been ways I'd like to share that has allowed me to thrive creatively.

My Artist Statement 

 The glass used in this creative photographic exploration was retrieved from my backseat door of my car that was smashed when I was attending a conference in Oakland.

Using disasters as fuel for creativity.

Things don't look good, and the outlook of the world as we know is shattering like glass. But what should we do in these unprecedented times?

I personally don't think we should worry or be anxious to the compromise of one's health, but I'm trying to empathize with those who feel completely restless. How can I help you? I pray for rest and I pray for peace in your heart and to our country.

I saved the shattered glass for 2 years and finally pulled it out.

On a more positive note, I've never been more creative during this pandemic and political unrest than ever in my life.
