|Humility and the Things We Cannot Change. Mixed Media (watercolor, ink, image transfers, record, glitter, gold leaf, gouache, and marker) on Arches paper. 2019.|
About a year ago, I started developing scotomas (blind spots) in my vision. I’ve been to a bunch of doctors (and spent a bunch of money) and I still don’t have an explanation for why I keep developing the retinal lesions that cause these spots. As a person who needs to create in order to feel purposeful (and I do this most fluently with my eyes) this situation plunged me into a pit of anxiety and despair. I’ve tried to shift my mindset to practice gratitude and try to take things day by day, which is all we really have anyway.
