In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?

Nature feeds my work and helps me constantly recognize the fact that despite humans outsized negative impact on this world, we are a tiny nugget in the grand scheme of things.

What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?

To be fully involved with the living and non-living community around me. To use the African proverb and the words of Huey Newton, it means that “I am we. I, we, all of us are the one and the multitude.”
