"I am Worthy

...the trees know

...the flowing streams knows

...the birds know

...the sky knows"


about this piece:

This messages moves through all aspects of my creative work with Intrinsic Paths. The term "Intrinsic" - wisdom and knowing from within. I am worthy because I exist, because I breathe, because I'm alive. It speaks to the deepest roots behind WALK book and every drawing, walking event, and meditative invitation I support or create. Being seen by the natural world as worthy, as enough... even when we don't fully (or ever) feel this way about ourselves has been - and continues to be - life-altering medicine for me. How we are reminded to seek flowing streams, trees, sky, and birds to help us process, heal, release pressure, grieve, and celebrate feels so important in these times. It is one of the most popular art prints in every market.


about the artist: 

I have been drawing my whole life. In the midst of so much change growing up, art class was always one of the safest places. Having gone to 12 different schools, carrying an extremely sensitive heart, and being gay/queer (aware since 7th grade), safe places to express were crucial. Beyond art class, I would hole up in my room and get lost in sketchbooks. I would design worlds - places that were open, expressive, colorful, playful, magical. There was always a sketchbook nearby and every blank corner of every homework assignment or quiz would be covered in miniature doodles. My artmarking has always helped me lay down "I hope they like me" performing, harmonizing and space holding, and chaos navigating - at home, in school, in peer groups, and alongside a hurting (+ beautiful) world. I won numerous art awards in my younger years and studied fine art and graphic design at Palomar College (AA in Liberal Arts with emphasis on Fine Art and Graphic Design) and Metro State University (BA in Art, Design & Entrepreneurship). Artistic expression is central to all aspects of my work. I have assisted an uncountable number of individuals, non-profits, and businesses in concept, logo, and campaign design. My multi-dimensional "Walking Artist" process is primarily informed by the people I walk with, the landscapes I move in, and an always mysterious inner journey. Every walk I take comes with a blank canvas. Unhurried movement significantly increases my capacity to honor, listen, and nurture my imagination.  Unhurried movement helps me witness, invite, and honor the hard, the painful, the good, the awe-inspiring, the basic, and the profound.
