Breathing Through the Trigger

Collage with Linoleum Block, Monoprint and Acrylic Elements on Wood Panel
24 x 24 inches

This work represents its title. It's about my ability to self regulate my emotions and not be reactive, but instead to be responsive in my own healing work. I have grown better at understanding my triggers and my boundaries. Thanks to therapy, somatic healing and plant medicine, I now have language and tools to manage the range of my emotions. I really love the color combination in this piece because the green and the red matched so well together, and the black outline allows the whole piece to pop.
