Curating

for me, curating has become inextricable with creating sanctuary, a widening circle of trust in which all are welcome to arrive as they are, push edges, experiment, return to themselves. my work now revolves around that ideal- holding the precious space that the heart and blood need to remember those things the mind often forgets.
