This is part of a series. Keepsakes is about all the memories we hold, good or bad. We cherish them all with the same intensity weather we know it or not. It reminds of of who we are and how far we've come. The good memories are cherished to keep us grounded and connected. The bad ones, to remind us how far we've come and how resilient we will always be.
Keepsakes for me is the honoring of everything that was and everything that will be. It was also a form of therapy, by bringing to life representations of past childhood trauma and making it art. Making it beautiful and now living outside of me I can see it from a third perspective.
