"I’ve created this body of work to document my spiritual journey re-connecting with myself.
I’ve imagined my new found journey on finding myself a re birth.
This rebirth is not depicting the stages of pregnancy, but the stages of how one puts one's mind back together.
The idea of losing and finding yourself.
Depictions of fear & uncertainty but also peace, because spiritual journeys are not just wary, but peaceful. I put together a presentation in stages of birth. From pregnancy of the mind to realization of life. The significance in understating what is growth and how to flourish through it.
The pieces of work are in succession of each other, tying the process of spiritual growth to actual birth in unison.
The chronological order of events highlight different stages of ones natural growth, and ones spiritual growth."
