Image Statement: Cutting and tearing through my creative output and stitching it back together as something new is a metaphor for healing wounds from a shameful past and rebuilding it into a positive experience.  Living with shame and self-judgment can paralyze us from achieving our life goals. Not only have a repurposed my self described "rejected artworks", I have transformed them into something far more meaningful and paved a new creative path forward.
