Seek the very best for yourself. Write the best story of your life and be the director of each scene in a way that brings beauty to your truth, purpose to your existence. Set high expectations and do whatever you can to reach your goals. You owe it to yourself to do your very best. You are entitled to happiness, fulfillment and joy. Do what you must to seek the best, but remember one thing: the true challenge in life is to seek the very best without causing harm to others. For the good of all and harm to none, pursue your dreams, your loves, your passions, the things that light your soul on fire. And if you can do this with your life and look back on all your achievements knowing that you did not cause harm, you will know the truest form of love.
This collection explores a return to basics, both in the principles of art and design, but also as this relates to oneself after a period of trauma and recovery. The paintings in this collection feature static geometry and saturated pure hues (shapes and colours are the first principles of design we learn about as children). This collection demonstrates a more intense exploration of basic shapes and colour in juxtaposition with expressive and organic painting approaches. It is the balance between the two that creates an exciting visual. As it applies to the Self, a journey of self-discovery can simultaneously feel like one is embarking on an entirely new sense of well-being and existence, but deep down, there are still basic core values and authentic belief systems that we each possess that come along for the journey and become a part of who we are becoming in our journey of self-discovery.
