Rooted was birthed when I realized that my free spirit was only grounded when I created. Releasing my creativity is simply where I found my roots, and these roots were established by my ancestors. My mother passed down her creative outlook on life to me. Even though she never created after my birth. I truly believe she released that energy and talent she held and gifted it to me to carry on within each of my paintings. My grandmother raised me until I was 6, and left me with one of my favorite gifts of all, her green thumb. Each piece of pottery I create seems to spill out of me and pull me closer to Mother Earth and unlocks the hidden omens she hides within her mud. The magic of generations pours out of me so that I can create moments of mindfulness to share with myself and others.
