“While the nature of my work is to live within the surreal, a world that I often describe as an escape from reality, it’s an incredibly fun challenge to interpret a very real theme or issue within the realm of my work. Often the elements that make it more fantastical, actually make it universally relatable, as it allows more people to see themselves in the work than a purely literal interpretation of the subject matter would allow. For this piece, “Nest”, I worked with the themes of inclusion and community and pondered what a safe space looked like for all of us. Whether it’s a home, a person, community, or even a sense of calm we find within ourselves; I wanted to create a piece that felt like the place someone would go when they need a safe haven. Wherever it is, I hope you find your “Nest.”
