I'm a caregiver and an artist. I received high honors in creative writing, fine arts, and sculpture at Montserrat College of Art.
In The Mind's Eye
In my mind's eye, I see dancing shapes. They twist and turn and create images. Faces, Dragons, Snakes, Landscapes, Life, and Death.
I feel the energy flow from my fingertip to the pen. Moving in a way I have no control over. Creating images I've never seen before, but are still somehow familiar to me.
The images my mind creates feel alien to me. Yet they flow through me with ease. To the pen and down to the canvas, creating something strange and beautiful.
Sometimes I wonder if it's me that controls the pen or the pen that controls me. Either way, I know something amazing is about to happen when I hold it.
No mistakes, no worries. Just the pen, the image, and me.
