Also known as Equinya online, I am a varied artist. Using broth traditional, digital and mixed media to render images both abstract and representational alike.|
When meeting new people there’s this point where the veil of being an acquaintance starts to lift and you see one another in great detail.
At that point, I can feel the worst parts of myself bubble up to the surface- taciturn, curt and awkward. I have a way of repelling people and I’m aware of it.
It’s easy to let trauma, conflict, or illness in your past become an obstacle preventing relationships from forming. Flat and one-dimensional, becoming your ailment is unappealing, unwelcoming and it pushes people away.
This past year I’ve met many new people and I’m glad. Slowly, but surely becoming less guarded.
