Since I was four years old, my grandma would always say that I would be an artist just by noticing my “way of living”. She passed before that passion bloomed into fruition, but her words manifested into who I am today, a creative.
Family has always been the center for my artistic expression in one way or another. My mom and brother both suffer mental illnesses, and their way of handling their strife is “manic creating”. While my mother taught me the value of making something new everyday, my brother was the one who taught me how to paint. When I realized I really loved painting specifically, I would ask my dad for art supplies, and he would drop them off on holidays/birthdays.
My life was chaos, and art was a safe space to express my emotions on a blank canvas. As years passed, I began experimenting with various mediums to continue processing the world around me. One of those mediums happened to be sewing, which I became enamored with. Since designing my own clothing line, Blume Season, I have rid myself of past insecurities, and helped other women love themselves inside and out. I am only twenty-three, and therefore have much more to create, so I am very happy that I now feel confident and comfortable to share my pieces, and I look forward to continuing my journey with all of you.
