reflecting

hello friends. i just wanted to let you all know that i'm going to be a bit absent from internet land for awhile.

my grandmother - who was one of the biggest influences in my life and my art - finally gave up her battle with lung cancer last night.

i'm going to spend some time thinking about her and all the amazing things she taught me over the years. i am blessed to have had her in my life for as long as i did. i will miss her, but know that she is with me. i hope to share more about her sometime soon.
