My work enacts the process of my transformation in response to trauma, especially the duality between my interior trauma and exterior appearance. The work represents my feelings of an event that occurred, the experience it, and how I overcame it. I only recently realized art is a powerful and transformative healing tool. Initially making this for people who have experienced trauma, they may feel a sense of healing from the work. Because it is hard to find people who will share openly, this would need permission from the witnesses, started to represent my experience first.
