I am an artist, it’s all I know, it’s all I do. If other things are realized through my art such as community building, activism or teaching… that’s awesome. First and foremost, I have to create and there is no limit to the things I will use or where I will find materials to create with. Just to list some things I’m about: used found and recycled things, painting, drawing, collage, building installations, stick and poke tattoos, hair cutting, boat building, abandoned building and animal touching, jewelry making, clothing making, and etc, etc.

“It is not like I’m trying to simulate nature. It’s more of a mimicking of the way of nature, the way things actually grow.” -Tara Donovan
