Artist’s Quote

As I age, the body becomes more aware of its own physical and emotional surroundings.


Mending with touch, curving within relationships and strengthening with care. Over time it becomes more and more the product of those around it. A product of kindness. A product of love.

Luminary’s Quote

… the more I hold myself close and fully embrace who I am, the more I dream, the more my heart grows and the more I thrive. – Elliot Page
