I am very excited to share with you my newest original series, "Restless In Wonderment"! The meaning behind this series lies in the fact that it has been quite some time since I have had a normal night’s sleep. It seems that my mind is constantly thinking of wonderful ideas and images for new art pieces. Throughout the day I often "zone out" and then quickly write notes and sketches in my sketch book. It is an exhilarating experience. Yet even after a long day, and some time well spent reading a book, I close my eyes and see colours and images come together.
This series is a reflection of the past few months in which I have spent long days and restless nights in wonderment of all the beautiful creations my mind concocts. Sleepless nights are frustrating but the beauty my mind attracts makes me feel alive and reminds me that I am so lucky to be able to constantly consider my art as opposed to the stresses other people often ponder. It is a sign that I am living a truly peaceful life.
