Becoming Whole

"This painting is about the journey of healing, restoration, and rebuilding ourselves from a space of self-compassion, acceptance and holistic care. All human beings experience suffering, challenges, pain and obstacles. Sometimes we endure traumatic circumstances that make our bodies, minds, hearts or souls fall apart. When this happens we may arrive at unfamiliar life landscapes. Nourishing our sense of belonging and connectedness, can help us as we put ourselves back together in new and powerful ways. My process began with meditating on the meaning of the painting. I contemplated the nature of healing and recovery from traumatic experiences and complex trauma. I reflected on the journey of grief and what it feels like to rebuild yourself when you have to accept changes in your health or life that you can't control. As I meditated--I began painting and translating my contemplations into movement, colors, shapes, lines and brush strokes. This painting was inspired by my experiences with healing and recovering from complex traumas (childhood abuse, multiple health traumas, miscarriages/infertility, domestic violence, rape, physical assault, racial violence, psychological torture). I created this art at home in Denver, CO during my inner peace garden meditation art-making session."
