I am drawn to quiet moments. I believe this pull originated from attempts at self-preservation when I was a young boy living in neighborhoods that were difficult. At the age of 7, I built a sanctuary in my room. In this small space, I placed a red tent on my bed and surrounded it with a moat of stuffed toys that served as my protectors. My imagination soared in this beautiful, safe haven. The feeling of loneliness was replaced by the comfort of solitude. Here is where I found my quiet moments. To this day I still look for the glimpses of quiet when the world is turbulent. Creating these images is the only way I’ve ever known how to share my story with others.
