CHOICES. We are all faced with them every day... Do you choose to let life tear you apart & break you down? Do you let the fire & anger consume you? Control you?? Ruin you??? Or do you make the best of things? Use your pain & circumstances to learn? Grow?? To teach & help others??? In Japan there is an art form know as Kintsugi. If you break your fine china you send it off to be repaired. When it is returned it is filled with gold. It is not only more valuable once repaired in this manner, but it is also thought to have a richer history & is more valued. This ancient art form inspired my series, CHOICES. I believe all of our trials & tribulations are meant to make us more beautiful. This series is a physical representation of the choices women make & how it affects the body & spirit. Choose wisely. Choose love. Be love...
