Bio for 2024

I grew up barefoot, on 50 acres of wooded land, handraising birds, learning and performing dance routines, harmonies, and going to the public library twice a week. I rode horses, did dance and gymnastics, diving lessons, skiing, piano and guitar, bass, drums and saxophone. My mom would wake me up at 5 am so as to write in a more unconscious state. I was also frequently walking in the woods, learning the names of everything and how to talk to the spirit in all things like the Native American people in many accounts. I am still as unconventional as I ever was, and making paintings which reflect a bit of my own soul back to me is my current profession. Art, music, spirit, love, are inseparable to me, and above all I believe my mission in life is to help others in the world to open their eyes a little wider to the beauty. I agree with Hiyao Miyazaki that any art created by AI is humanity losing confidence in itself.
