"My artwork, which is based in drawing, has always been a therapeutic and meaningful activity for me. Putting art together with psychotherapy seems like the most natural thing in the world. Using art and creativity in my commercial work gives me perspective on art's ability to communicate while my personal experience with art-making has shown me that there is insight and growth to be found in the art-making process. Creativity and imagination are inborn resources for each individual to claim.”
