About the Artist
We all need an escape from reality every now and then. This series began in a stressful turbulent point in my life, and was my escape. Several of the pieces have a door or archway of some sort as a reminder that we are not trapped in our situations.
In this series I created a world unweighted. Fish have no confines to the water and float about the air, and people are not bound to a single location. The surroundings wrap around the figures as if to protect them, and the figures are larger than life. A tiny city is nuzzled around the figure in one piece, as an entire island is occupied by the space of a person laying down in another.
What I want to show through my work is that we are all significant in our own way and should never feel small. Each and every person has the ability to change the world.
This series gave me the courage to make some large and difficult choices in my life to remove unnecessary stressors, and take the risk to leave the life I had in pursuit of the life I wanted. I have gotten to beautiful place and I continue to dream and follow them, as I hope for everyone.
