My subconscious and imagination are very active . If I lay down and close my eyes, I start dreaming almost immediately. I can’t capture everything I see in my mind, but drawing is how I make my subconscious visible.
I have always experienced a closeness with other species and have been unable to believe the hierarchy and separation I was taught between humans and other animals. I don’t observe the supposed difference in degrees of intelligence, I observe different types of intelligence. Animals have their own thoughts and lives. We can’t know what their experience of life is. I like to explore what it could be like to be other species, or what relationship humans could have with animals that they don’t have now.
In kindergarten, I started telling people I was going to be an artist when I grew up. This was my second choice; my first choice was to be a deer. I was very embarrassed about this when I realized you had to stay a human your whole life.
I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area just after college, which felt like coming home. The natural surroundings have been a strong influence on my life and my art. I initially pursued an art career for about a decade but then decided I did not want to sell my art, as it was too personal. It was not a few years ago that I completely changed my mind on this. I was possessed by a strong desire to get my art out into the world. Since then I have had numerous shows. I would like my art to bring beauty and inspiration to as many people as possible.
