In what ways does nature inspire or inform your work?
Most of my work focuses on people and how they interact with the environment around them. Most of these environments are natural environments. I think that nature does not only serve as a perfect backdrop but it allows for people to realign with themselves, to release a feeling of purity that might have been dormant. Nature is powerful and healing as much as it if beautiful and nurturing. Nature has given me a lot of healing and I hope that my work can transmit my reverence to it.
What does it mean to you to be part of a thriving ecosystem?
To be part of a symbiotic environment where we all give and receive, not just the latter.
