"I’ve spent much of my adult life as an expat, teaching contemplative practice and creative process. I’ve lived and worked all over Asia for the past 15 years sharing these tools with others and learning from local artists. Spending so much time in a foreign culture reinforces universal themes of what it means to be human, and also presents a unique view into our differences. My hope is to convey how art is a bridge to this experience of mind that connects us with something larger than ourselves, and encourages us to realize that we are not alone."
