PERSONAL STATEMENT:

I AM INSPIRED BY life’s unsolved mysteries and quizzical coincidences. I am inspired by nature, constantly in awe of how the Earth can never hide away. I am inspired by people who are honest, genuine, and thoughtful, braving the world comfortable and confident in their own flesh and skin.

I FIND PURPOSE IN the work - the work that takes place in the studio, in the research, in the physicality of the body, and the puzzle of emotions and ideas manifesting in the mind and spirit. I also find purpose in the work to practice patience; the work to listen, process, think, and empathize; and the openness to admitting mistakes, learning from the experiences, and breaking out of comfort zones. I find value in the effort.

WHAT MAKES ME COME ALIVE ARE arguably the smallest or grandest details of life: venturing outdoors; being brushed on the shoulder by a cool autumn breeze; reflecting on the top of a mountain; the contact of pen to paper; singing in the shower; laughing at a clever joke; surrounding myself in the company of friends and family who love and support me and I them; grooving to my favorite tunes; and surprising myself by the vast range that my body can stretch, grow, and move within space.
