"When I paint, I'm painting a window on the wall of my prison. When I write, I'm creating the stories of the world that exists beyond my prison When I write and play music, I'm calling out to whoever might be in the next cell, hoping they will sing back and let me know I'm not alone. The windows I paint on the walls don't show what is outside, only my interpretation of it. They are more the impression of an internal landscape—a way to open a conversation with my mind, a way to learn more about who I am. Art is not just a catharsis, it is a means of communication with anyone who might exist outside of our personal prison."
