It seems throughout my art career whenever I felt like I was building momentum, whenever all the cards finally felt like they were stacking up in my favor, abruptly and out of nowhere I’d get hit with something that would stop me in my tracks. Never a simple something, but a life changing, perhaps you’ll never get back on track something.
I find that when these things called life happen, it’s then I discover within myself hidden reserves of courage and resilience I didn’t even know I had. I come to realize these things don’t have to weaken you, they can actually strengthen you, and I know that I have no choice but to become more determined than I’ve been, more courageous, greater in spirit and to have an even brighter, larger overall outlook.
My favorite quote has always been, “There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anaïs Nin
It’s really what is at the core of this project.
We should all be noticed, and each girl should have the opportunity to blossom.
