a symphony of unspoken truths.  In the intricate dance of human interaction lies a silent language—a dictionary of unspoken cues and gestures that unveil our innermost thoughts and emotions—an ode to the delicate balance between reflection, exploitation, introspection, and interpretation.  As thoughts crystallize, so do realities... yet our minds, forever in motion, construct narratives from the shadows, weaving webs of assumption where clarity should reign. As you think, so you become.....our busy minds are forever jumping to conclusions, manufacturing and interpreting signs that aren't there.

Investigation. The shifting blush tones of our cheeks, the color drained from our skin as we suppress emotion, involuntary smirks that reveal hidden desires, and subtle cues that publish our deepest fearsconfessions we unknowingly share in the silent gaze in our eyes- Our eyes, the windows to the soul, reveal what our hearts already know; they tell the truth we try to withhold. In a world where predators hide behind masks of innocence and trust, our bodies speak a raw language, sending social signals that can be misinterpreted and weaponized. Even in the hearts of those with pure intent, human nature breeds curiosity and yearning to understand any undeclared feelings from the ones we love. It's a battle between reality and presumption, between perceiving and projecting. You digest a shrug, deep breath, or sign of sorrow as something, while it may be nothing at all—the weight we assign to these silent confessions can reflect the doubt you hold within your core beliefs. Sometimes, the lines blur between what is and what we wish to see. But in that ambiguity lies the opportunity for growth. We need to pause, reflect, and reconsider our certainties born from fear and pain.

A ballet of discernment and introspection, guarding against the vulnerabilities that render us exposed to the danger of trust. Sometimes, we may struggle to discern between reality and our assumptions. But remember, our perceptions can be deceiving. Our "intuition" can be clouded by the facts of our past. I tell myself constantly to take a moment to pause, reflect, and consider the possibilities. Avoiding the conclusions I've made from fear and pain.

A tango of reality and assumption, interpretation, and calculations, preventing the uncertainties that leave us vulnerable to change when we lean in to trust another being. The truth may emerge, unshackling us from misconception and revealing the moment that fear was formed.  Ultimately, it's not just what we infer but how we respond and transfer our perceptions into actions and deeds.

That will shape our lives and fulfill our needs. So let us not be fooled by what we think we know, but embrace uncertainty and let our curiosity grow. For the truth may surprise us, it may set us free. And in that moment, we'll discover what it means to truly be.

A mirror of our silent struggles, our veiled vulnerabilities, and the necessity of vigilance in a world where even the faintest whisper of confession can be exploited for gain.  So let "Silent Confessions" stand as a testament to the unseen language binding us together—a language of solace, connection, and the subconscious we all must dissect. Let it ignite a spirit of empathy, a commitment to honor the silent confessions that reverberate beneath the surface of our shared humanity.

allow your intuition to guide you.


At our core, we strive to provide a personal, and stress-free experience. Buying original artwork can feel intimidating, especially if you've yet to experience the piece in person. Cultivating and nurturing an easy, relaxing and worry-free line of communication while engaging with our art is what brings us joy.

Connor and I share a deep love for building our own unique, and growing art collection. When adding to our personal collection, we allow our intuition to lead following what catches the eye, viscerally pulls us in, and plays with your heartstrings in ways words cannot. Discovering new artists with that bright glimmer in their eye as they talk about their work or feel their heart through the screen in the words, they use to describe a piece online. It is an intoxicating experience, and one we wish for you too.

We can confidently and humbly state that our artwork is crafted to be timeless treasures and investments, built to last through the ever-changing stages and periods of life. Each piece is set with the intention to be passed down generation, to generation - surpassing fast trends, and fleeting styles.

If you're intrigued by our artwork and our personal stories that adorn them, we would be honored to invite you to reach out to us. Whether you have questions about a specific piece, simply want to connect, talk mental health, or maybe you're eager to learn more about our process: we're here to guide you every step of the way.


Consider scheduling a complimentary virtual consultation with us. During this session, we'll have the opportunity to delve into your vision and preferences, understanding the essence of your space and what type of artwork would harmonize seamlessly. All it takes is a few snapshots of your wall or living area, and from there, we'll work our magic, crafting a custom rendering tailored just for you. No strings attached or pressure, we wish to build genuine connection, and stay in touch as our art career evolves and grows. If not now, then later.
