My art is where I find my truth. This is the place where I am raw, bruised, happy, insecure, childish, brilliant, creative, dumb, and it is where I bleed.

While I am writing or working on a photoshoot, I don't think about satisfying other people. I don't even care if the final product is liked, as long as I feel like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders afterwards.

That's my creative process-I use my creativity to unveil different aspects of my personality, and then my demons become less like tormentors, they become beautiful.

I'm often misunderstood and sometimes I look like a lost soul that needs saving, but I'm spiritual and I'm peaceful more often than not.

I'm a party girl, but I enjoy my quiet time, I'm brave, I love hard, I'm a bit vein, and the only thing that is more important to me than my own art is the music and life lessons that I'm inspired by.
