Get to know yourself so deeply and completely, so that when someone enters your life and tries to ruin your peace, you can remind yourself that you are unshakeable. Your heart cannot be broken because it has already been smashed to pieces and is now held together with the powerful love you have for yourself. Your mind cannot be tricked into believing you are anything less than spectacular and deserving, because you have been to the other side of self-doubt and vowed never to return. Your soul is at peace knowing that you are, and always have been, true to yourself and others, and you have nothing but dignity and pride for the way you have lived your life.
And all of this is not to say that you haven’t made mistakes, tripped up, stumbled, been at a loss for words or completely misunderstood the true meaning of self-love, but it is a reminder that the person you were before, who was so easily shaken, is gone. There’s a new you now, and the new you is unshakeable, as you are finally living authentically in your truth.
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.
