About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Starving Artist
Location Tucson, Arizona, United States
Introduction My daughter, Mackenzie, was stillborn on November 25, 2006, and I began a downward spiral of substance abuse and an eating disorder. In Spring 2007 admitted to Kahi Mohala Behavioral Health Center, in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, where I began seeing an Art Therapist as part of my recovery. I had always loved to draw as a child, but I had never taken up painting. Art helped me greatly in my healing process. It was a long road, but today I am clean and healthy. Painting has had an extremely therapeutic effect on my life, and I am extremely grateful for all the help I received along the way. My son, Brodie, was born August 31, 2008. He is my inspiration to lead a better life. Today, I am pursuing the path of an Art Therapist, so I can help others overcome trauma and tragedy in their lives. -------------------------------------- "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time." --Thomas Merton
