About the work
Since I was a kid, I lived all over the world and always felt like I didn’t belong. But when I was outdoors, I felt a sense of belonging. In the outdoors, I was at home. I discovered that it is through outdoor activity and making artwork that I feel most like myself, whole and engaged with my environment, no matter where I am.
I am inspired by the poetry of nature: color and light in the landscape, seasons, and the passing of time – all our senses are awakened when we spend time outside.
I truly believe that going outside will save us as a society, and this is a driving force for my work as an artist. The more time we spend outside with others, the more we learn about each other and grow as humans.
Through my work, I want to share my love of the outdoors and encourage people to commune with nature – and to share those experiences with others!
