What gets me out of bed in the morning is the chance to make art that inspires others. I make artivism (art+activism) to teach empathy and to fight ignorance every day. I've fostered a community on social media, @cupofcreative.co on Instagram, which invites seekers of self-awareness and those who want to make a difference in the world. As an artist, I do what I can to make pieces relevant to our times, so that complex ideas and issues are more easily digested and shared with others. From social justice to climate change, I am passionate about learning, growing, and making a better future for us all. With a heart full of empathy and a canvas ready to be sketched on, I will keep making artivism for as long as I can.
