Shop - Creation, a Healing Process for Art in the AM
Who are you? (Bio)
Art in the AM: I’m a self-taught artist with a constantly evolving style, through which I experiment with contemporary and surrealist expressions. My work imbues meaning with thoughtful symbolism and eclectic archetypes into every single piece.
Why did you get started?
Creative expression helped me recover from anxiety, insomnia, manic depression, and self-harm, which I’ve suffered with for a large portion of my life. Healing has become a strong inspiration and focus of my work, as art helps me overcome personal demons by harnessing the energy and transforming it into constructive positivity.
What do you do? (or what service do you provide?)
I create original works of art, mural design, tattoo design, album and book cover art, character design. Some mediums follow as: gouache, watercolour, graphite and charcoal, acrylic paints, and more. Presently, I offer products such as threaded patches and art prints – with apparal as a future goal in mind.
I am very open to new projects of any kind and love a new creative challenge! Generally, I work through traditional mediums, but I also like to experiment and develop new methods and styles.
What are you working on right now?
In order to show my work at galleries and exhibits I have beendeveloping a portfolio, with great care, highlighting themes such as mental health, personal and community growth, and rediscovering strength through passions. As a side project, I am developing comics that explore concepts of depression, which I d hope to publish and sell as books in the near future.
Drawing and creating have always been an inherent part of who I am. From the moment I could hold a crayon I have been creating. I developed mental illnesses from a young age and art became my Savior. Creative expression is my greatest asset and helps me communicate in a healthy manner. I also simply love to create. Art is my passion, and an extension of my being.
