At a very early age, my heart was set on becoming a fashion designer for women, men, and children. In focusing on this goal, my work has allowed me the opportunity to meet and work for some of the world''s most incredible people, such as the world''s fastest man, and one of the world''s most beloved clowns. I have also been the stylist for a television piolet and I have been afforded the opportunity to dress some of the best up and coming acting talent in the business.
I, like so many others in this life, have faced the difficulties of loneliness, the grief of a broken heart, and the lose of family and friends. I have faced these difficulties by the means of reflections to overcome the loneliness, tears to relieve the grief, and by focusing on the days ahead to better understand the losses.
This work was brought to life due to the losses I encountered over what was supposed to be the happiest time of the year. The Holiday season of 2004 proved to be a survival of sanity via mind, heart, and soul. This work was intended to be my way out of not falling into a place I feared. That place being depression. In sharing my thoughts with a friend, I soon discovered these thoughts were not just for me. After she read my thoughts, I saw that they affected her in a way that let know she was not alone.
For so long I felt these losses to be a punishment, when in reality they have been my gifts from those I have lost.
They are my gifts of growth, strength, and the ability to help others going through similar situations.
My gift, to you.
