The passion and inspiration to create Warrior Masks evolved from vastly challenging life experiences for me over the past few years which required me to find deep rooted strength. As aspects of my “former life” morphed into the abyss, I was confronted with the unknown and provoked to write a new story. Part of that new story involves tapping into my creative side using art as a medium to express all of my chaos, evolution, and calm as things continue to unfold.

Mask making gives me profound focus and inspiration to work within the terms of my new physical disability. The process of connecting with others on a deep personal level and creating a spiritual representation of their self into an empowering mask is very therapeutic. I am amazed how easily my creativity supports me in this process as I transform my vision into a finished piece of visual art.
