When creativity strikes, make sure you’re holding it from the root💡
Given enough time in this world, either in this body or the next, one gains the fortune of experiencing misery and the fraility of material expectations. This is a fortune when one asks oneself "why all this" with an open heart.
Introspection, endeavor to heal and honesty; The wealth of all seekers.

“In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they're still beautiful.” -Alice Walker
The thing I love about hand-stitching these paintings is that it leaves indelible markings - capturing an exact moment in time. Once a stitch is in place, the hole is there for good. The stitches definitely aren’t always perfect, but then again, neither is nature and neither are we. High five to embracing imperfection 🙌🏻
Not having a studio at the moment is tough right now because space for new work gets very limited. I will be selling some “older” work at a special rate in order to make room in my bedroom studio. All paintings/drawings will come framed and are around 9x12 and are marked at $80/each. Please DM me for details, I can hand deliver if you are around the Philly area or work out shipping if you are not. Titles below:

[i feel so alone by beowulf]
Instead of using happiness as a way to get through tough times, people go through tough times to get happiness. Happiness is not an achievement, it’s a way of life.
What is happiness to you
Why do you put aside your individuality to become like the rest. It’s easy to blame the system, but you were someone’s inspiration.
Just stop and see.
It’s a chain reaction.
Just stop and be.
This page went from being extremely therapeutic to extremely regrettable.
Leaf printing!! (Idk what it’s actually called)
Blooming from the inside out.
I spy with my little eye...
In my bubble.
Inspired by an art on Pinterest.
Sunflower gotta be my favourite flowers. 🌻 Honestly while making this page I’ve become an expert on sunflowers.
Sunrise and sunset of the same day. Crazy how the world works.
More wildflowers!! 🌻
I have a habit of collecting wild flowers wherever I go.
Today I went to a windmill farm and picked wild flowers there, and for some reason it brought me extreme happiness. What is a weird thing that brings you happiness
Planed to paint a galaxy and stars on paper but ended up doing it on my hand.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when looking at this art
✨🌿 🌱 ✨
This picture of my window looks like a Van Gogh painting.
Late night sketches.
This has to be one of my favourite pages in my journal. What do you guys think about it
Books are an escape ticket from reality.
I love this poem and mostly every poem from Erin Hanson. She’s actually such an amazing writer.
Peace is a state of mind. Find what brings you peace and fight for it.
Believe in magical solutions.
And so it starts... or ends
