Watercolor, Gouache, Ink, 2022

Have you ever loved something that was killing you? An addiction or person who was or still is toxic in your life?

To grow and overcome, we must face our demons and feelings, we must acknowledge their existence and accept ourselves with gentle kindness.

“Afflicted” is a representation of letting go of the thing that one loves so deeply but is destroying your body and soul. Allowing the pain, the loss, and the toxicity bleed out of the soul in order to become a person at peace and reclaim happiness.
