Artist Statement

In response to the art brief:

“We exist.

If we did not exist then there is nothing to protect, to care, to love, to hold, to nurture, to get intimate.

That why we need to stand up and take action. Otherwise, our inaction opens the way for the bullying and things that don’t sit right to fill in the gaps.”
