"I learned to lock away love because I feared the world could not be trusted with my heart."
Story of my life. I've built walls around my walls, but sometimes the Universe surprises you with all the feels even though you'd sworn off such vulnerability.
As an artist, I am often asked where I get my ideas (I can't count the number of times I've been asked if I take psychedelics. Answer: no)
Imagination and creativity can be cultivated. A lot of my work is inspired by fairy tales and myth. Often my ideas come in the form of half remembered dreams. Even more often, I'll put on the sound of shamanic drums and let my mind wander.
I wish I could capture even a fraction of the visual richness that can be found in those wanderings, including this particular piece.
