I’m convinced that a well-lived life boils down to doing at least one brave thing a day. “What does bravery look like today?” is a question my art asks of me every day.

Sketches inspired by the process, as I breathed in between working:
The olive oil incident – ha!
Noticing how I behave with different paints
What, exactly, do you need?
Imagining the figure and becoming less afraid
Practicing a face
