"Journey” is a collection of the fragments of pain in my life. The torn paper pieces represent life’s stings, along with my pain and failures. The collage of pieces glued together, one by one, represents the healing process toward wholeness that emerges from brokenness. There is beauty in pain. The hurt transforms; it transforms me. Pain only leaves a light scar; it does not stay. The falling leaves represent shedding what no longer serves me—the cleansing and freedom of letting go, a little at a time. The birds represent the joy, the song, and the beauty in life. Life is a journey, and it can lead to beautiful, unexpected places, like showing my work at ArtPrize with a piece that illustrates my life.
