This is a debut solo exhibit exploring the question of beauty in the natural world, one we view as wild and chaotic. What is considered beautiful and what is not? How does that clash with our own aesthetics and understanding of our everyday natural surroundings?

The exhibit asks the viewer to remember their inner eight-year-old self when everything you saw outside at your feet was a new discovery, everything miraculous. There were no judgments, just awe.

Works on paper include large-scale drawings, watercolors, stories, and quotes reflecting on these thoughts as it relates to ourselves, climate change, and our interconnected relationship to all living things.

ALL ARTWORK WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE
