My art after coming out has been raw, hard, life giving, exciting, new, freeing and eye opening. I have always loved the arts but never tapped into it becuse I was following a crowd of people that are walking the wrong way, in my opinion. I was going further and further until I snapped out of it and got out of ywam. In ywam it was more about getting the lawn mowed than my family’s mental health therefore destroying what mental health we had. Working non stop and paying to work is so ass backwards it honestly hurts that I did that for 7 years… I feel like I wasted so much time being a part of ywam.
Back to art, when I started my transition I painted something that is dear to me and I can’t get over it. It open my eyes to my potential and gave me wings to fly in this art cloud. That’s really cool you know? Art is a really good way for me personally to channel my traumas into beautiful pieces of work that express what I’m feeling in the time. Art after transition started to become a method of healthy coping and being able to do it freely is a privilege. I am privileged that I get to do art when ever I’m having a really shitty memory/day.
Being a queer artist is hard and being a Trans woman in this society feels damn near impossible. Art helps me forget the pain and the shit even if it is only for a moment. Art is important and it is all around us. Freedom there is sweet freedom in the art sphere.
I have an etsy that I am selling my art on so if you are curious or interested please take a look. I only have three of the piece I have up right now but each are signed and numbered.
Thank you to everyone who reads this blog. Feel free to share it when ever because I know I’m not the only one with this kind of story. Here is the link for etsy: https://etsy.me/2XE0f5M
