I look at your most recent art and get a sense you are playing peek-a-boo with us. When will the real Lily be revealed? Are you shy, coy, or just a little scared?

Art, like music and love, is how people search for themselves. In the hope that the art mirrors something back to them telling them who they are. This art terrifies me. I'm delving deeply into myself and seeing what I find. I'm sure if its revealed to me it will be pretty apparent to others who look as well :)

I have two daughters who are artists. Their mother was an artist. The only thing I could ever draw was a paycheck. So I am humbled by your talent. And I hope the more you delve and share, the less terrified you'll feel.

Think part of doing it and figuring these things out is that it does terrify me. Fear is like a guideline for me in that way. Only starting to figure out how much that fear, like pain, is wrapped up in every aspect of myself. That I need it as much as I dont want it. Duality is mind boggling sometimes. Drawing may not be your forte but it sounds like writing may be your pierres de résistance as far as expressions of self go but thank you, truly, for taking the time to look into my head a little <3

I think you express yourself well. You have something to say, and i think you should say it with every work you post. Each of us sees different things in art, and if i were to tell you what I see in your piece titled KEPT, for example, it would be this:

"I’m here alone: cold, naked and caged. Can I escape? Perhaps. Am I afraid? A little. Am I curious? Absolutely. Someone took me prisoner for a reason. Someone holds me captive for a reason. Someone covets me. I’m here for a purpose, even if it means being alone, cold, naked and caged for now. And so I wait."

I have too much to say and no words to say it. Some look at Kept and would see something dark, terrifying and cruel. Others would look at it and see something beautiful, they'd see love. Some would see both.
