4 months ago we discovered my son had a rare genetic disorder called 'William syndrome'. We soon discovered the beauty and love he will bring to this world and feel so lucky to be allowed to share in his unique, loving and insightful journey through life. My recent work attempts to capture and express the fragile balance of life and the wonder and love that we can experience when we open ourself with compassion towards each other. I attempt to share the joy and beauty I put into my work with the viewer. I also try to balance my awe at the incredible and complex process behind the creation of life with how easily it can be lost.

MADONNA NAMES MILEY CYRUS AS APRIL GUEST CURATOR FOR ART FOR FREEDOM
Madonna has announced that Miley Cyrus will be the guest curator for Art for Freedom for the month of April. Miley will collaborate with Madonna to select daily submissions which will be showcased on artforfreedom.com.
“Art can speak volumes - I’m glad to join Madonna in encouraging people to have their voices heard at artforfreedom.com. It’s an ideal home to see how each of us can participate in changing the world for the better,” stated Cyrus.
Cyrus and Madonna will select the winning artist’s submission at the end of April and will award a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization of the artist’s choice. All projects must focus on the values of Art For Freedom.
Chaz is January's winner. He selected a 501(c)3 organization from Arizona called the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Southeast Valley to receive the grant.
"I would like to dedicate this video to the men and women who are still fighting for the right to love. Love is not a privilege. It's a human right."
Madonna has confirmed Katy Perry as guest curator for Art for Freedom in 2014 for the month of January.
“I am so fortunate to have the freedom to express myself through music,” said Katy Perry. “Now I’m calling all of my incredibly creative KatyCats to use their talent to show Madonna and me how they express their freedom. I believe that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art be your voice.”
As part of the Art For Freedom initiative, Katy Perry will work with Madonna to select an artist during the month of January whose creative expression demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights. Madonna will then award a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization of the artist’s choice.
