Abstract is my Art

It all started with The grainy sound of a fine tip pen on construction paper. It reminded me of when as a child I would write with my fountain pen on a blotting paper. In chaotic times, drawing the lines brings me solace. Abstract is my Art: I mimic life’s intricacy, yet keep it simple, It reminds me of myself. It soothes my soul, my healing process.

People expect my work to reflect experiences of racism or sexism or both. Yes, it can be challenging to find peace in a world you don’t always feel like you belong. From the lack of representation to micro-agressions and assaults - the trauma we indure serves to normalize oppression. Yet we survi-val mode leads to chronic stress, headaches, brain tumors & Alzheimer. No wonder women suffer twice as much from depression.

In chaotic times, drawing the lines brings me solace and activates my parasympathetic nervous system, countering the fight or flight - triggered by a world you don’t always feel like you belong.

People expect my work to reflect experiences of racism or sexism or both: I give myself a break and meditate. Combatting my depletion by Self-consideration.

Abstract is my Art... not to ingratiate myself, I just allow my hands to let themselves wander.

Tomorrow, I’ll draw birds, Or faceless brown bods. Still today I’ll mimic life’s intricacy and keep it simple 'cause it reminds me of myself. It soothes my soul, my healing process.

It all started with The grainy sound of A fine tip pen on construction paper.
