When I sit down to work I never have an exact idea in mind. I think of a color, I see a form, or I feel something. When I sit to create the vague image I had in my mind develops to a concrete idea, and once I start I don’t stop until my work is complete. I set out wanting to do portraiture yet, I found having a concrete subject in front of of me to be stifling. I wanted to feel something, I wanted to create something based on that feeling. My work is an example of my own experience. There are feminist themes in my work based on my feeling of defiance of patriarchy as well as feeling pigeon holed and trapped as a woman. My work is also an observation of those around me and their struggle. I enjoy themes of human vulnerability and what connects us, whether it be emotive or images of the organs inside all of us. Art began for me as therapeutic. When I became mired in the swamp of mental illness art provided me an escape. Art provided me with passion and a sense of self efficacy. watfeli joined Society6 on June 7, 2014
