I started beading in 2018 shortly after an unfaithful disabling car accident. Beading became my therapy while I was healing and learning to walk again. I used it as an outlet for my depression and anger that I experienced due to feeling as though I lost myself and who I was. I was no longer able to compete in bodybuilding, model or use my athletic abilities how I once did. Walking was a task in itself, I spent months in bead healing. Eight months prior to the accident my baby brother unexpectedly passed away, a few months later my stepbrother passed away as well. There was so much pain and grief in my life, my creations are a reflection of the beauty in the world that I wanted to see in myself again and the beauty I saw in all women.
