When I was very young, my parents rushed me into the car for a family event of some kind. I was just beginning to develop memories. I was scared to go, I hated social events. Realizing I forgot my stuffed animal, I cried. This is one of my first memories with anxiety. My dad picked me up and asked me why I was crying. I knew I was scared but I couldn't communicate. I didn't really have a reason. He spoke to me in a calm voice, pointed at the dark sky, and showed me the sun peeking through the clouds. “Look, a rainbow! See the colors?” I was smitten. That simple moment changed the tone for my entire day. As an adult that struggles with daily anxiety, I recognize now that even my earliest of memories- before I even learned basic cognition- I was always anxious. Travel and social life have always been a lifelong struggle, despite my desire to see the world. My art is a representation of the perfect and colorful Instagram-worthy reality of the life and travels I desire.
