I’ve been think­ing about my indi­vid­ual nat­ural cap­i­tal — my time on this planet, how I use it and what I do with it. The answer for me is in truly liv­ing each moment with­out fear of the past or present, with my loved ones by my side.

Sound, light, colour, smells…they all ADD to the moment of rap­ture when cre­at­ing the work, and for me as an artist, there is noth­ing quite like that pure energy of cre­at­ing the “feel­ing” of what you have in that one moment and place.

Vis­it­ing this place was a great inspi­ra­tion for me. I would say it was one of the most stir­ring and inspir­ing moments of my visit, and I am grate­ful that the Haida Nation, these Elders and mem­bers stood so firmly to pro­tect this place. We should do the same now, as the North­ern Gate­way Pipeline Project by Enbridge threat­ens once again, this mag­nif­i­cent cul­ture and ecosys­tem. Stand up and speak out about the effects that this pipeline will have on habi­tat, cul­ture and the ecol­ogy of our planet. Write your MP and the offi­cial oppo­si­tion. Make your­self heard…and be part of the new “Line”.
