I am Krystal Frenchwood a poet, artist and author of the new poetry book Metamorphosis. Born in Galveston, Texas, raised in Hitchcock. I struggled for quite some time with expressing myself and was unable to write poetry. Too focused on the judgments and opinions of others was crippling my growth. I was following the footsteps of others, despite walking my path.Thoughts have always crossed my mind of combining my artwork and poetry through my writing, but I never had the courage to act upon it. I became frustrated enough from living an unfulfilled life. I knew I had a voice and visions to add value, colorful colors, to the gloomy black and white world of today. It was through my passion for wanting to make an impact, changing the perspective of social norms. I noticed an interesting correlation between my art and literature. I was able to dive deeper into self-exploration by discovering the depth of my literature and drawings. Finally, I was able to blend my literature and merge visual concepts into illustrations. Illustrations that will enable me to help readers visualize my aesthetics and shed enlightenment through my work to you for your interpretation.
