Art is my mirror for the world around me and the destruction in it. When the world seems like it's folding in on itself, when it's on fire, under water, dirtier everyday, it's still beautiful. And, somehow, it still plays. So I use art - I paint, I draw, I create - to help me understand. The tools art provides are electrifying. I breathe with color, scream with line, write with shape and shadow. Most of my work focuses on nature, how we push it, and how it pushes back.
