• The Shredded Life Print


The original painting was done in acrylics on canvas by © 2019 Elma Ferreira.

There was a time in my crowded computer career that I felt so isolated, so torn from being my own true creative self, that I made this painting as a gift from myself to myself on my own birthday, while being all alone at the edge of the world.   This was done as a symbol of starting the process to fight for my escape from the claws of computer coding and get back to my greatest passion:  the music and the arts.

I am happy to confirm that the process has been done.  I believe that it is not only what we say, but also what we imagine or express through any medium, that determines the course of our lives.   It has been proven over and over again in my so-called shredded previous life.  Never give up, even though it might look like everything you ever dreamt of, are irreparably torn and twisted. There is always hope.
