I felt a true wall up to my spirit and I didn’t even truly realize it until the visual mediation. I needed to see myself opening up to spirit inside me. I needed to embrace my journey and present self.

Receiving the prints first was perfect. Getting to touch them and hold them in my hands was incredibly moving. It forced me to sit with them in a different way! It breaks away from the digital world and instantaneous world we’re in.

It felt like my wellness being taken care of by a spiritual artist.
