Simply respecting and celebrating life … in all its magnificent diversity … is nowadays the truly radical act of any artist.

It is no accident that one of the most significant ways of revitalizing the spirit and reconnecting with our deeper senses & more worthy selves is found in communion with nature and life itself … and in our power to imagine.

There is much that is wondrous to behold, value, defend and gain strength from.
