Artist Spotlight: Casey McBride

Dear Readers,

Until recently, I never would have considered myself and artist. Creating has always been my haven. It’s the one place I feel safe from judgment, confusion, rejection, and heartbreak.

Experiencing the loss of my grandfather and mom’s recent cancer diagnosis left me speechless. This lack of knowing what to say has led me to sharing my art, the scariest part of which was sharing my first piece publicly. through this process, i have found that showing transparency, in both good and hard times, is the brave thing to do. Let us strive to be transparent with each other in hopes that it will lead to something truly beautiful.

Sincerely,

Casey “Pickle” McBride
