Newest Sculpture

Aftermath Angel
Papier Mache Clay Sculpture
I have not decided what to do with this piece yet (Keep, Sell, Donate)

In recognition of all the sexual assault survivors out there (1 in 6 people) & anyone who needs an angel to carry their pain~

She wears your wounds and scars, so you don't have to. All the broken bits, cracks and pieces, all the ugliness you have endured, she takes. When you feel trapped and twisted, dead inside with a heavy & hollow heart she will carry it all for you. When you can only see darkness, she looks to the sun for you, to remind you of the light ahead. She knows your struggles and prays for you a never ending prayer.


I am skewered, spliced and splintered.

Strewn all over like inconsequential matter.

My insides ache like they have been kicked.

My skin crawls with angst.

My appendages are thin and weak, dead air.

My digits barely holding this pen.

I have been attacked,..

I am crushed

I am afraid

No stitches or staples can cure what ails me.

I am afraid, there is no cure for what you have done to me.

As some of you know I am a first responder for victims of Sexual Assault and Domestic Abuse. I have had some very difficult SA call-outs lately that have clearly left me wondering how people can do what they do to each other.


~Let us help END the unspoken Worldwide Epidemic of Sexual Assault, simply by speaking about it~
