Art Therapy

Throughout this last year, there are many things that I have taken up that help with my mental health. Mostly, I learned how to adapt the things that I was already doing, turning them into powerful tools for healing and self-exploration. I have been using a Bullet Journal for the last few years in an… read more

Last Year

It’s funny how change seems to happen so slowly, but then you look back, even just one year, and life is completely different. Last year at this time, I was in deep shock, that would lead to depression, and a diagnosis of PTSD. Last year, on September first, I was violently raped by someone I… read more

Mixed Media

I’ve been having a debate with myself about whether or not to introduce my mixed media pieces to my website. I’ve been doing mixed media on and off for several years now, and I love the process.

The Space Traveling Toad was my very first real steampunk piece of artwork. When I started sketching it out, I started by creating this story in my head about a space ship that was built to work like a frog. I chose the frog, partially because the biological adaptations that they have allow different types… read more

Finding Art Again

Sometimes a whim can change everything.  A few years ago, my ex-husband encouraged me to buy paints that were on sale after he saw me looking at them longingly. I hadn’t painted in years, and I hated the things I produced back then. I used to dream of being a great artist as a kid,… read more
