Artist Statement

Art engages my brain to calm my need to be safe, to trust, and be in control. When I allow myself to create, it offers me the opportunity to blend art and science, experience emotion, physiological sensory responses, spirituality that opens my heart, and compassion in the world.  This event makes me feel trusted, safe, heard, seen, and loved.
