"I was just minutes away from missing my father’s death at the Hospital. When I arrived I didn’t recognize my father. Yes, his name was on the chart at the foot of the bed, yes I was in the right room, yes it was his hair and face, but I couldn’t recognize him at all. That’s when I realized: what we see in the mirrors is not ourselves. We see our corpses. What animates us, the living, beautiful thing in us, is our spirit. We are all so much more than we will ever see or know."

A very famous and popular (photography) website contacted me today about featuring and interviewing me for my Human Canvas Blending In project!!!! I am so excited for this, and all the doors it may open!
It feels incredible to know that I am being recognized for my hard work and that potentially millions of people will get to see it! Stay tuned!
Human Canvas Blending In - Room
Artist Statement: I paint a person to look exactly like a certain fabric/material of an everyday household item. I want to show how people can feel like they are nothing and how they can feel like they are trapped in their own personal spaces.
For this particular installment of my series, I was inspired by my own personal emotions. Lately I’ve been feeling “blank”. As if my mind is a clean and empty slate, juts waiting to be filled, but nothing comes to me. As if there’s an emptiness in my head creating a huge void. Living in my dorm doesn’t help either. I keep coming back to this place that should be my “home” but it doesn’t feel like it anymore. It’s just an empty and numb place that isn’t holding anything for me. Just like my mind.
