Tell us about yourself! Founder of Project TheraPaint and lover of arts, music, history, and architecture. I am from the Metro Detroit area and am currently a master’s student at Lawrence Technological University, studying architecture. As a pedestrian, I was involved in a vehicular crash in 2017 which derailed my life in many ways.  Following the accident, I lost much of my physical capabilities which led to limited mobility - which led me to find purpose in new circumstances.  I needed a form of release and in a way, art found me.  I quickly realized the power it has over inner healing.  To create, I persist through the pain and finds therapy through painting; splashing fear, anger, and pain onto various substrates.  Whether I paint with alcohol ink, watercolor, or acrylic, I discover a place of safety, relief, and pure bliss as I experiment with canvas, glass, tile, vinyl, and wood. My fascination with painting may have bloomed from a traumatic event, but I thank God for the gift of making art. I am also beginning a graphic design venture involving original (self) artwork into business card design, banners, logos, labels, etc. Faith taught me how to persevere while painting brought a sense of purpose back into my life. At the beginning of my artistic endeavor, I was invited to showcase my work in Detroit, Chicago, New York City, and Venice, Italy. As my artistry grows, my hope is that others may connect with these emotionally evoking paintings and find inspiration through their own journey.
