The Art on My Walls

Just a collection of the artwork I’ve done. I carry these with me to each new home and put them on the walls wherever I am. They help to make a place a home, for me. Art and music combined are how I express my inner thoughts. I don’t share them all that often, but they’re little windows into my mind, and I thought perhaps you’d like to see them.

Note: Most of them are completely mine, but there are a few that were inspired by other pieces.

(update: I’m going to do this as a three or four part series, because I realized there’s 34 photos. Hehe)

I did this one at a time when I was going through some depression that I never was brave enough to share with anyone. She's turning her face to the light, so everyone will see the facade that everything's fine. But inside, she's filled with darkness, nothing is growing, and her thoughts are scattered. I don't know. Maybe melodramatic. I still like it.

Relatively recent. Reflecting on the innocent deaths of many black men in the U.S. Wanted to share in solidarity.

No reason for this one. I just thought it'd be cool.

Inspired by another artist's work, based on what it feels like to walk alone in the dark as a child.

What does a raindrop sound like? I tried to capture it in an image. You can almost hear it, can't you?

The one on the left is one of my all-time favourites. I was trying to paint a woman without using any skin tones. She's flawed, but beautiful. I like her.

This was a few years ago, when Will and I were long-distance and I would get lost in the kind of memories that make you ache all over with the longing just to hold his hand again.

Legs. Because I was in my Grammy's claw-footed porcelain tub and I thought, "Hey, I like the colours in here."
