For me, art can be a visual language about connection. When I’m making art, I like to leave plenty of room for what might happen, as opposed to saying “this is what is going to happen.”

I like to investigate gratitude, action, adventure and love in art… and sometimes stuff that might make me or someone else, have a good laugh or cry.

With this exhibition, I combined my photographs with lines from poems I have written.

It is similar to other types of art I like to do: drawing comics and making graphic novels.

The use of words with images makes for a really full-bodied expression for me.
