I communicate with my light
I thrive in the mud
I grow best in partial shade
I bloom under moonlight
Nocturnal and wise
See this brown in my skin?
I was made to survive harsh conditions
In 2018, I collaborated with the phenomenal visual artist, Lance Smith, to create this beautiful piece! I’m so thankful for this Nevada Humanities led project and to Test Site Projects, a fine art publishing house, who curated and produced 20 copies of this print. This is one of my 2 artist copies, signed by both myself and Lance.
