”I am a painter interested in exploring ideas of community, interdependence, and interconnectivity- especially regarding humanity’s place with one another and with our environment- with our cities, with the Earth, and in the cosmos. I see art as an important way of developing empathy and tolerance by exploring diverse viewpoints and creatively exploring possibilities.”
