Willow's art comes from a great imagination. Her imagination however, is a blessing and a curse, her overactive mind being twisted from verbal and mental abuse. Living in a household filled with negativity and major responsibilities put on her at a young age, her art being one of the few ways to have solace and cope. Despite usual assumptions her art is not inspired by any substance abuse. Having had a constant battle with mental health, she prefers to use bright and florescent colors and have psychedelic like scenes in her work to bring a sense of happiness and euphoria without the use of recreational drugs.
Willow currently resides in Carmel, Indiana where she is still working towards her goal to become a full-time artist. Slowly developing a broad audience through social media and keeping up with her local art opportunities.
"Psychedelic colors pulse in rhythmic succession like a soulful heartbeat thumbing electric neon palettes and balanced brushstrokes. Invoking imagination through storytelling, a sense of reality and idealism merge as fated counterparts. This is the intriguing work of Willow Benjamin.
With a vivid use of color and focused composition, she captures a sense of euphoria that kindles a sanguine spectrum of emotion and curiosity through her surreal visions"
