I have this fear of being unable to create original sketches. For some reason this is limited to my creative drawing skills. As if I would somehow erase my own imagination if I didn't spend enough time developing it. I feel like I take inspiration from everything around me, but somehow the act of coping a picuture and turning it into a drawing, even if it is only to get the correct shape of a body part, seems to scrape away at my own legitimacy.

Thankfully my time spent traveling allowed me to create. Something that I haven't had the space to do in what seems like a very long time. At times I did copy reality...

Other times I took inspiration from concrete ideas, like songs...

And other times, perhaps the most rewarding times even if they weren't the most successful, I was able to create in and of myself...

    Your artwork is always beautiful, and I'm so lucky to have so many of your pieces in my (our) house!

    Can you post your recent self portraits??
