Process-oriented, motivated by Empathy and lateral problem-solving: Dyslexia at its best
My main goal in life is to harness the radical insight of my twelve-year-old self.
Through my art Facilitation project "Journal Stew" I aim to empower fellow Earthlings to be fiercely curious, and to remind us that everything carries deep wisdom of its own sort - our self included.
Through Fern Hill Comix, I seek to amplify the obvious and illuminate my chosen axioms, through animal characters that defy social expectations. These are The Uncanny Familiars of Fern Hill.
