Emotional tagging

Vanity Mirror

Title: Vanity Mirror


Ever had one of those moments when your emotions get the best of you and it reflects in your artwork? Of course you have! Every artist has those moments… … right? I was due for surgery the day before I made this (which I titled Vanity Mirror) and for some reason I just felt the need to express all my anxiety. My body has gone through many changes that have been sudden and unwelcome. I can’t eat like I used to, I’m always in pain, I’m on (what we lovingly refer to in my household) a craptastic amount of drugs, I’ve had to cut off my hair (which was fan-frickin-tastic! let me tell you my hair was sexy) I’ve lost a lot of weight because I’m sick and because I didn’t lose it in a healthy way I feel I look very unnatural.

But I have a wonderful support system in my family, a moderately excellent medical team and I still get to make the art I love. So what’s my problem? I don’t know I’m human I guess 🙂 For all the emotional, angsty artist out there… welcome me to the club! Happy viewing my inner turmoil guys 🙂
