Self Discovery through Art

Student, NDMU Class of 2020 Art Therapy (BA)

My art is a visual reflection of my journey at NDMU. As I look through each piece I am transported to a moment, feeling, or experience. Art Therapy has reawakened the love I have for playing with materials and creating new things. It has taught me that art is a process that reflects self discovery. My art has never felt complete. I now understand that it was not meant to because my journey is not complete. As I continue to grow my art will continue to change.
