One of the best things about art is that it can be any form of expression. Dance, cooking, music, building - all of these are forms of art. The second best thing about art is that there aren't any requirements or limitations. There's something beautiful about being able to create something that doesn't have to meet any standards or receive any approval beyond your own.
I started receiving recognition for my artwork when I was in first grade. Winning awards at local festivals and at school, I was thrilled. Something that I had always done was now getting me attention ( what first grader wouldn't think this way). But as I got older art developed into something else for me. It became a sort of therapy as I used it to express myself in ways that I felt I couldn't with words.
I have two major sides to myself: the art side, and the paranormal. Ever sense I can remember I have seen spirits, known things without being told, and just felt a deep connection with "that kind" of stuff. Most of my life these two sides were independent of each other. But when I began college I began struggling with the paranormal side, and started having night terrors, black outs, and increased sightings of other worldly things. All of this, combined with being away from home for the first time, sent me into a deep depression.
I began using art as a therapeutic way of releasing all the fear and sadness I was bottling up inside. My nightmares were 'released' into my art. I painted every strange, troubling dream, and once they were on canvas they didn't bother me anymore. Because of this, my art was literally a piece of me, and contained a part of my soul and I became very attached to my work and felt I could never part with it. And I didn't.
Three years ago, after years of prodding from friends and family, I began to warm up to the idea of selling my artwork. It took a lot of discerning, courage, and self discovery; but I eventually came to understand why I needed to share my art. As much comfort, insight, happiness, and therapeutic relief it has brought to me - it could also do this for someone else. The feeling of knowing that my art could possibly do for someone else what it has done for me is why I sell art. Art has blessed me in countless ways and has actually saved me when I was at my lowest and things seemed hopeless. If I could sell a million works of art and it bring joy and blessings to just one person, then I will be content and consider myself a success.
Because of my own experience with the relief and healing that a dream painting can give, I offer custom dream paintings. I can create an artistic rendition, depicting and representing a dream or nightmare that you are struggling with OR one that you are pleased with and wish to permanently capture. As a result of my experience and interest in dreams and nightmares, I have been studying the science and spiritual aspects to dreams for more than five years now, and confidently offer dream interpretations as well.
