“The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.” ― Jessica Hische. I stumbled upon this quote a few years ago in the midst of some overwhelming personal turmoil. I knew I needed to be more creative to improve my mental health but didn't know what to do. After reading the above quote I soon remembered that in high school I spent the majority of my time doing Celtic doodles instead of taking notes. Then, when I would come home to try and do my homework, I would find myself doing more Celtic doodles. In September of 2013 - after a break of over 10 years - I started doing Celtic doodles again, but this time around I provided myself with a space of complete artistic freedom. Very quickly the artwork began to evolve, as if I was making up for all the years I was supposed to be drawing but never did. To me, each piece I have completed is a snapshot of a particular aspect of my life that has itself evolved for the better. In this way I get to express 2-dimensionally and instantaneously a process of my life. I get to freeze time. I get to turn a verb into a noun. To me, this is the magic of art and the magic I want people to feel when they look at the art that has come through me.
