“Through interactions with forests, learning from indigenous peoples and studying cosmology, I have come to perceive that everything on the Earth is a manifestation of Earth and its interplay with cosmic forces. I believe everything is interconnected and sentient. These ideas have been a central part of my art for over twenty years.
Art is my medium for pondering the universe and my way of responding to the world. It is a delight to communicate my ideas by putting color on a surface and forming it into meaning. I love moving the paint and making lines.”
