Flashback to a project preview I did at @scrippshealth for a very special project about healing ❤️

I’m excited to have “As Open Wounds Open Wings” and “.38 With A .38 (The Speed Of Eternal Stillness)” on exhibit at Arts District Liberty Station with the Expressive Arts Institute in the Martha Pace Swift Gallery until June 15th. The Show is called “Recovering The Artist: A Show About Hope” and it’s the perfect place for me to debut these creations.

I love this photo I captured last night through the bars at the opening. Looking down at my work from a higher point of view, I was reminded that we create our own prisons and sometimes all we need is an alternative perspective. It is up to us to move, change, and grow to remove those bars. Otherwise, it will appear as if we are trapped when we are really just uncomfortable and require a shift in our lives. It’s better to be momentarily uncomfortable and working towards growth than to be eternally uncomfortable and simply accept where we are at any given moment when/where we feel imprisoned or beaten down by life. Remove your bars and set yourself free!

Braska hasn’t minded the extra time for play and fort building at the Carini Arts workshop. She reminded me today that she has earned that for being named “Employee of the Month” for so many consecutive months…and I can’t really contest. Today starts your Birthday week (and mine) little B.

You can help support Braska by checking out our shop, blog, and podcast at

New “Beautiful Accidents” available. These small works are richly textured and imbued with history. They are also a great way to start or add to your collection. Message me to get yours today.
