For me, creativity is like a good friend, one that accompanies me everywhere. On good days it serves as an outlet for my thoughts, lending them purpose and depth. On bad days it comes to my aid, offering me distraction and grounding.

The things I create reflect my inner landscape – they are me looking out and making a statement. While on the surface they appear pretty and unassuming, innocent even; beneath they are hiding a deep truth, waiting to be massaged into life.

I use my creativity as a way to better understand myself and others and find it a helpful medium through which to explore and resolve problems. My work is centred on personal growth, emotional wellbeing and physical health.

Pinning things to an external fabric changes them, making them less threatening and more real, reducing their volume so that they lose their spikes. No matter how difficult, how hard to instigate or how uncomfortable to maintain: for me, the effort and the continued pursuit are worth it.

I call my work 'Embroidered Truths' because each piece refers to and represents a specific period in my life. Lifted unedited, it bears testament to whatever element or event it was necessary for me to exorcise.

When I feel hopeless, lost, worthless and empty: art restores me. When I feel anxious and restless: art calms and grounds me, replacing the pieces that life and living and the people and things that I rub up against have taken away. It is something that I love to do and I cannot imagine ever being parted from it.

Goals
$0 of $2,000 per month
My goal is to reach $2,000 per month so that I can devote 100% of my time to working on creative projects.

When I reach $2,000, I will invest in professional photography and sign up with publishing company to self-publish my work as a) hardback and b) ebook.

Your help and support will enable me to do this.
