It all began with a sculpture I created with a thousand wine corks and some mannequin arms. When I was at the beginning of my art-making journey, I was drinking huge amounts of wine. Emily, the wife of a fellow artist, approached me at an art show and asked if I had a problem with alcohol. At that moment, a seed was planted, later to sprout in a healing journey and light up a sober life aligned with a creative path.
Art can be a path to healing if we don't stop ourselves from creating what wants to be born.
