2018 has been the worst year of her life. Loss, grief and the awakening of old ghosts have taken the best of her and now she is trying to navigate through life in search of some peace. Lotus is the name of her therapy room and also one of the most powerful flowers in nature. The lotus flower grows through dirty pond waters, mud and extremely rough conditions, but it blossoms anyway. It sinks below the water only to resurface again the next morning, beautiful and strong. LOTUS is an abstract representation of a passage through a winding road where the body keeps the score, things cease to make sense, memories return and time is lost.
