Through the creation of art I create my own safe space to be. Through the art of tattooing I share this space with others. I value the messy truth of the process of creating and understand the vulnerability necessary to have my message received. There is a common thread in my work which is the spaces that I inhabit; both mental and physical. Along with this, there is a battle for peace in spaces that have not done me well. Although I create art for my own peace of mind, I seek a place where my experiences and spaces can be unraveled by others. I hope to continue to confide in my art and offer myself a space to ask questions and explore my consciousness.
