Note From the Artist:
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my work.
I am grateful for you.
I hope you find inspiration and perspective while exploring my pieces.
I create because I am the most Honest in that space.
I create because it holds all my uncomfortability.
I create cus' its the safest place I know.
I create cus' certain things are bigger them me.

I paint because there is no other way out.

With all my love,
Jacqui M.
