What messages do you want people to receive from your art?
I want to encourage others to explore what is important to them. I want them to know it’s good to have goals but it’s also OK to change your mind. We are in a constant state of change. There is always room for growth and I’d like my art to express that idea.
What have you learned about yourself from being a creator?
I’m a collector of many things, physically and spiritually. I tend to collect objects from nature like shells, minerals and plants. But I also collect memories and emotions through photography and journal writing. I combine these elements in my photographs and collage work.
