ARTIST STATEMENT // Art provides us with ways of being that are in direct and playful conversation with who we truly are. Learning academic subjects by making art is not just “good”, it is evolutionary. By supporting engagement in inquiry by way of creativity, innovation, problem-solving, and empathic interbeing, which the arts provide, we are giving humanity the opportunity to continue to develop abilities to support the reinvention of our species, the healing of the Planet and the emergence of new regenerative cultures.
