Intrinsic Paths is a creative journey that inspires a way of being through artmaking, storytelling, nature connecting, writing, walking, and facing, healing from, & repairing systemic harm.
It is messy, soulful, wild, and colorful.
It is what swirls and aches between us when walking or rolling together.
It is rage, humility, and liberation... whaling, dancing, celebrating, resting, and dreaming.
It is the wisdom in twisting trees and flowing streams.
It is cosmic, mysterious, and full of edges.
Jonathon Stalls, Walking Artist
I spent 242 days walking across the United States in 2010 and have continued to move alongside thousands of people for thousands of miles. My artwork currently moves in the realms of pen and ink drawing, writing and poetry, storytelling with the Pedestrian Dignity campaign, economic and racial justice organizing, meditative practices, and creating/scouting long-distance walking routes.
