This piece was created for auction at the Ins and Outs gallery benefit for Kaleidoscope Youth Center. It represents the pivotal role that art and self-expression have played in my life, beginning at a very young age. My piece A World Apart, uses a similar combination of subject matter (flowers, child, house, clouds) to paint a very different depiction of the isolation and doubt that plagued much of my early life. This piece presents the safe and nurturing space I was able to create for myself, with the help of an encouraging mentor, that allowed me to freely explore my creativity.
