T6DH - The Six Directions of Healing
What initially inspired me towards mycology was living with and learning from Thai forest monks and nuns in 2010. For the last 26 years, my practice utilized text, drawing, painting, collage, and textiles, rendered in oils and collage. Today I only uses organic and living materials to make my work. Shifting towards a more connected and responsible worldview benefits everyone.
My work attempts to utilize mycelium as both a medium and a solution to some of the world's greatest climate challenges. Art is my opportunity to reestablish a new narrative on our approach to a healthier, more informed way of living. Through participation in workshops, residencies, and new engagements, I encourages others to be involved and learn about the organic materials rebuilding the world today.
