I make art through dance because it allows me to express myself in ways outside of the norm of society. Art allows me to creatively flow and keeps me sane. Nature, beautiful places and people inspire me to make art. Past experiences and life itself help to influence my art. My art belongs in the world because it is layered and passionate, emotive and helps to give me new life. My art helps me to dive deeper into who I am and helps me find my own unique place in the world. I am constantly lost but yet I am also constantly finding myself through dance. I make art through improvisation and visual ... ization. I let myself open up through dance, and this allows me to find vulnerability through strength. The art is free and full of flow, helping me become stuck and unstuck once again. It is more vibrant than most, almost dramatized. I hope my art is never boring. I hope it is always confusing. My art is my home and without dance I become ordinary.
