About the Book
My primary goal as an artist is to weave a thread of understanding through disparate people, places, things, and experiences. Directly beneath the surface of that goal is a desire I am sure most artists share—to weave a thread of understanding through the disparate aspects of my identity. I have been writing since the age of 12 (poetry, prose, short stories, essays). I have been creating visual art for as long as I can remember. I am currently sheltering in place in Portland, Oregon — with my brother and teenage daughter—where I am completing a PhD in clinical psychology.
