“It [the ego] says: “One day, when this, that, or the other happens, I am going to be okay, happy, at peace.” Even when the ego seems to be concerned with the present, it is not the present that it sees: It misperceives it completely because it looks at it through the eyes of the past. Or it reduces the present to a means to an end, an end that always lies in the mind-projected future. Observe your mind and you’ll see that this is how it works.
The present moment holds the key to liberation. But you cannot find the present moment as long as you are your mind.” The Power of Now | Eckhart Tolle

Here are some shots of my installation at @bakedandwireddc “Two months ago, I realized that most of my goals were right in arms reach. By chipping my goals down to their core, I could finally see the soul-satisfying essence of them. I had to move past the ego-riddled surface level that mainly focused on the outward appearance (aka coolness) of my goals. Then I was left with the raw, vulnerable, but pure goal. And that goal was something that I could have right freaking now.” ✨link in bio✨
I’m so excited to be teaming up with the Potter’s House @pottershousedc - a cafe, bookstore and community space rooted in Adams Morgan since 1960!
Pieces from my #mosaicsketch series are now available for purchase in store!
I started this series a year ago and the process have been so transformative.
Thank you guys so much for your support along this journey 💗
What do you say to the dying when they say “I don’t want to die”?
Watching her go from having months to weeks to days to hours was the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced.
I’m definitely still processing last week and hoping to use this box to work through my feelings. #workinprogress#deathbox
A little over a year ago I started a personal project to make 30 6” x 6” mosaics. I called each one a #mosaicsketch . While I had been making mosaics for years, it was this project that got me serious about my art practice.
Now almost 50 mosaics later, I’m starting a new #mosaicsketch series. Cheers to mosaics! 🎉
