About This Collage

Everyone agrees that life’s too fast.
I’ll admit I didn’t choose to slow down.
My brakes were pumped for me.
Then, I got used to it.
Now, I kind of like it here.

This collage belongs to a series of works that was created while I processed an intense personal tragedy that resulted in a number of seismic shifts in life, faith, and vocation. Its heaviness and hopefulness - its heart and its hurt - reflect my inner world during that time.
