Grief and Acceptance

Over the past year I have experienced several losses that caused me to fall into a deep depression. Art has always been my outlet of expression as well as my career, and a major part of my identity. The works in this show depict my journey through grief and acceptance. I explored different mediums throughout the year. Some pieces are painted with bleach, others are drawn with marker, and some with charcoal. As I moved through feelings of shock, anger, depression, and acceptance my art also changed with it. My most recent works are the mandalas. The mandalas show life coming full circle and how we continue to live even after death.
