What makes your art unique?
The ink work I do is pretty intricate for how difficult a surface bone is to write on. Sometimes I can’t even see what I’m doing and have to trust in my muscle memory. Beyond that, bone art isn’t very unique, people have done it for thousands of years, it’s a beautifully human thing to do.
Why is sustainability in art important to you?
We have one planet, and we take it for granted. Those in power to do something refuse to, leaving we the people to bear the responsibility. Of course this isn’t fair, individual civilians can only make so much of an impact, but we still have to try.
What’s one way you give back to nature or your community?
I grow my own herbs, I’m trying to grow my own veggies as well but I’m not very good at it! I try to keep the woods behind my house free of invasive species. When I’m able, I donate to mutual aid funds for disenfranchised and/or marginalized people who are struggling.
What do you hope your art inspires in others?
I want to inspire an interest in folklore, in antiquity, in ancestry. I want someone to see my art, go home, and try to find out what the daily lives of their ancestors would have been like a thousand or more years ago
