Ten years. Ten years of very slowly dying from a number of autoimmune issues, something that doctors couldn’t put their finger on. Finally, in 2011, I found my health by uncovering the culprit for my unexplained issues (gluten, for those who are curious).

When that happened, and I started healing, my brain sort of re-wired. I’d close my eyes in the shower, and I’d see abstract art. I’d go to bed at night, and I’d see unique art before me. I’d laugh hard, and I’d see abstract art. And all of that, when completely sober! My husband insisted it’s just me, healing, but I felt like it was someone programming my mind.

Fast forward to a few months later, and I fell in love with the style of “pop art vintage collage” in 2011 — an art medium brand new at the time, making the rounds online. I started making these photo collages inspired by vintage art immediately as if it was a primal need of mine. I’d wake up in the morning, and I’d have this need to make a collage out of some vintage photos mixed with new ideas. Never before in my 39 years of life thus far, I felt that way, but I cherish that feeling every day now.

Art flourished late for me, it was almost on a “paused” mode, it seems, but it finally did arrive when I was ready for it.
