About the Artwork + Radical Rest
Come on Over (Digital Illustration, 2021)
"I find rest by settling inward. I find rest within the depths of my imagination. When the world I see before me is confining, I sink into the bountiful bliss of an inner world. Here, my people and I flourish. Our land is life-giving and our young ones are whoever they would like to be. Rest is a place, a time, a feeling and we are welcome to stay for as long as we’d like.
This image was created from a place of rest. It serves as a reminder that comfort is within reach, and each time we honor ourselves and our bodies, we can return with these treasures."
