Artist Statement

"Manorisms" is a culmination piece created from fragments of other work. I spent the summer regaining strength and courage by immersing myself into a variety of media. Painting, fiberglass, welding, sculpture, metal arts, woodworking, name it. The place, this cocoon, that I spent my time rediscovering who I was as an artist...and a person.. Was a little coastal hideaway named "The Manor."

How it fits into contest

This was created after a period of significant trauma. Every single day I called on the Lord to protect and guide keep me strong so I could walk safely in his armor.
It is a miracle that he opened my eyes and graced me with the courage to move on.


Just me.
