The Story Behind Blur.
I've admired street art for as long as I remember. How walking down the street became like walking through a museum - ever inspiring, every changing, ever accessible. After a life time of creating art that stayed in my room or hung in galleries, I dove into street art in the Fall of 2015. During that time my health plummeted in ways I never imagined. For months I quite literally could not speak, my words a sea of vowels. But a fire inside me ignited during that time, I had so much I wanted and needed to say. I demanded to be heard. Sick and tired of my old artistic outlets, I grabbed a pack of labels and it spilled out as if it was meant to be. Blur was created from desperation, a need to be heard. And while I continue on my path of healing, I'll keep creating street art as a way to find my voice again. Hopefully I'll inspire you to find yours too.
Though the inspiration of my work stems from a very deep and personal space, my motivation to keep creating is to have a positive impact on my community. I want to challenge anyone who sees my work to be vulnerable, empathetic, to say what they need to say in their own lives. Most importantly, I hope to have a connection with every single one of you.
