Searching for Happiness
Life really is a mixture of sunshine and rain. Some days you're happy and others you're sad. That's what being human is all about. And, that's why art exists. Art is therapy. It’s transformative. Even at a glance, it's a thing that can alter your mind in an instant.
Whether you create art for yourself or for others, watch a great story unfold through film, or hang something you love on your walls—art truly has the power to heal. It can lift us when we need it most. That's what creating this series did for me. For a long time—to quiet the blues—I covered my walls, social pages, and everyday life with “Happiness” (And it worked!) It occupied my mind and shifted my focus when I was struggling with anxiety and depression. This series helped me cope and overcome much of what I’d been struggling with and holding onto since I was a kid, and now,
I want to share it with you.
For a long time, I chased the rainbow. I searched for colors that screamed and sunshine that never went away. Because of that, I created a massive personal archive of happy moments. This is “Searching for Happiness” a limited edition, mood-enhancing collection captured between 2014-2020.
In a world that can often feel dark and overwhelming, I hope this can be a remedy.
Sink or Swim is part of an ongoing Pool Art series entitled "Swimming in a Pool of Emotions." This series explores both the highs and lows of being human and finding a balance between the two.
Sink or Swim, that's kind of what it feels like to chase a dream (happiness) and leave everything familiar behind in search of something new— something unknown. In my case, Los Angeles! It's do or die time— fail or succeed. And it's entirely by your own efforts. Sink or swim; that's how you find out what you're really made of!
