4 layers of plaster + concrete + sand + crystal quartz, jasper, and tigers eye grounds + arizona rock pigment (glen canyon) on canvas housed in a handcrafted, natural maple wood frame. she is detailed with a piece of drift wood we found at Sullivan’s island, utilized as a loom I decorated delicately with wool yarn. eternally fascinated with the diverseness of different textures and materials harmoniously united together like they were aligned to cohabitate. 48 x 36 x 3.

for those who
walked before her,

who led her to finally find solace by changing how she viewed loneliness.
confronting that feeling of being completely lost when alone, stemming from running from self. She didn’t feel alone, now knowing this feeling wasn’t uniquely tattooed to her.

those who shared the most intimate intrusive chatter and invasive thoughts, those who debated with her, confronting her largest fear of being imprisoned within her mind forever. then taught her how to quiet it. those who felt deeply reassured in the newfound love they grew for themselves, so much love it overflowed, sharing it with her.

those who shared their darkest moments, comforting her with the knowledge they eventually found the light. those who knew it was the right decision to walk away, walked through grief and made it to the other side to tell her it was worth the pain.

those who fought for women they hadn’t met. those who drew a roadmap for her in case her battery started to die. those who looked at their pain as a reference letter for a job taking some of the weight of the unknown, off her shoulders.

those who proved healing can be done. those who broke silence to help her find her strength.
