Words on the Journey
"experiencing endometriosis is a pretty tough time both physically and emotionally.
For me, its been a real struggle to balance my life in a way that doesn't tip me over the edge. When your physical ability to function on a daily basis is in a state of haywire, existing in the 9-5 world often feels discouraging. Through the exhaustion, deep pain, and confusion feelings of isolation and disappointment would creep in as I lay there curled up in the all fimaliar sheets. Meeting this desolation with my creative ability is continually pathing the way in which I'm able to provide for myself and my partner. I wouldn't be able to be the creative I am today without the strength and resilience I have found inside along the way.

These intimate raw depictions of my life now set in time as romanticized tokens. The foundation of our everyday.
