Vision Statement

Excellent, is a thought-provoking and powerful image that speaks to the resilience and strength of the human spirit. The black image of the artist serves as a symbol of the inner self, while the purples and oranges in the background represent the unique and creative mind. The intricate patterns in the image hint at the complexity and busyness of the artist’s neurodivergent mind, which can inspire a surge of creativity, but other times can cause restless sleep, lack of focus, or feelings of being overwhelmed. The image ultimately speaks to the idea that embracing one's true self, and using that to create art, brings freedom and empowerment. This piece is a testament to the idea that our differences are what make us truly excellent.
