I was born a scientist.
As an undergraduate, I studied metamorphosis in insects, the way caterpillars grow, shed their skins, and transform into butterfies.
I began practicing art in response to personal trauma, and the art quickly metamorphosed into the larger skin of politics
The political morphed into the spiritual and the scientist in me began asking questions too large for molecular answers
I use clay, earth-flesh birthed as magma in the sea, raised to the mountaintops, and washed down to riverbeds,
to create tactile and visual witness to the metamorphosis of our species.
