Artist Statement: The Awakening is all about processing an internal shift. These pieces are all about finding the magic and beauty in life. Creating these helped me be more present. This collection was featured at an art show fundraiser for Rainbow Railroad. Rainbow Railroad is a charity that helps LGBTQ people escape persecution and violence around the world. This show was a celebration for Pride Month. I wanted to use my artwork as a way to celebrate my Pride and support the community globally.
