    Villein - part of my "Fallen" theme, I was drawn to the idea of what happened to those angelic beings that were cast out of the heavens but yet remand neutral in their banishment. The word "Villein" is a person occupied between a Free Peasant and a Slave. Their main job was to tend to the land their Landowner owned. Villein is a creature that now tends to a selected area that she calls home, bringing back to land to once was. Those who try to harvest from her rich lands are quickly handled by her wrath.

    UNBROKEN
    "UnBroken" is a humbling piece that I took on and grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with a fan of my work. They admired the way I created the balance between the Distress and Beauty that I put into each of my pieces. "UnBroken" shows the aftermath of surgery from a brain tumor removal and revealing that there's beauty from the strength from that person. The scar is a reminder of what was faced, and the mark left should never be seen as broken. I made sure to show the progress of my work to make sure I was on the right track and displayed what they envisioned properly. My hope for this piece is that someone else out there that has gone through the same Journey will receive the same feeling as my Collaborator. "Scars are stories, history written on our body" - unknown
