Into The Fire
“Some women fear the fire- some simply become it.” R.H. Sin
The last few years have been a refining fire for me. I felt like I was dying. Life continued to feel like an unending fire that I had not chosen. I fought it. And then one day I realized that this fire was here to refine me into something better. That I wasn’t losing myself but instead letting go of what no longer served me. I learned how to dance in this fire and realized it was here to help me stop pushing away the thing I so desperately desired above all else… which was to make my art. This last year has been a discovery of allowing Artist to surface. These photos taken on New Year’s Eve capture me, the female form, who has learned how to dance in the fire and fully welcome Artist into 2017.
