butterflyImagine what it feels like to be totally free of anything holding you back. The limitless joy of being. Not any one thing, just being. How many times in your life have you experienced this state of exceptional bliss? Has it been once or twice or anytime at all?

I am attempting to express my freedom here in this picture. It took me 42 years to understand what it felt like to be free. Truly free both in my mind and my body. I have experienced a wide range of situations and emotions that made me feel less than free. The journey I am on brought me to a place where I realized that I was choosing for myself what my freedom would feel like. It also brought me to a place where I am finding a fusion of healing and art. I incorporate my work into my own life as a healing tool and I am intending positive light and energy into it as a healing tool for others.

Please enjoy my small offering to the positive energy in the world. The vibrant blues and warming reds. All of the little changes in mood and light expressed by the interactions of this contained rainbow. This art piece is designed to invoke feelings of freedom and joy and I invite you to let your mind relax and enjoy the underlying and soothing energies.
