Artist Statement

I was often wondering if I was too caught up in life's whirlwind to stop and notice the things around me. The collection 'Raw Milk' was written in an effort to regain my own senses in a multitude of ways, from actually seeing things to listening to my own intuition. It was written as a sensory love story, from a girl in a digital world.
