Today, Nov 20, on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we remember the 331 transgender/gender-diverse people murdered over the past year. For this face, I wrote out the names of every person on the list. You will see many ‘N.N.’s’ - for those with no known name. To me, they are sibling, friend, and above all: human.  We honour the fallen today. ✊🏿✊🏽✊🏻 Rest in Power.  #tdor #tdor2019 #transdayofremembrance

Another Pride flower: the Pan-sy! Pansexual is one of the ways that I personally identify. All it means is that love and attraction feel the same for me no matter the gender of the person. Hence the blue (men), pink (women) and yellow (folks outside the binary)! #panpride

When our values guide our behaviours, we feel happier! But, sometimes, we get lost in the FOG (Fear, Obligations, & Guilt) and stray from the path. This can lead us to fall into the pit of despair. The FOG looks scary, but it can’t really hurt us.  DESPAIR DOES. So, remember your values, whatever they may be. WALK YOUR PATH. ❤️  #mindfulness #makemindfulart #art #artist #walkyourpath #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #mentalhealth #mentalwellness

lament for the trees (ii) When we commodify forests rather than approach them from a spirit of reciprocity, we imperil our relationship with the entire ecosystem. Forests give us so much: building materials, sustainable sources of heat and energy, and paper. In return, all they ask of us is that we manage them with a view to the future, and take no more than we need. One of a miniature triptych of 3x3" acrylic and ink works on paper. #abstractpainting #abstract #abstractart #makemindfulart…

lament for the trees (i) I am experiencing a lot of climate and ecological grief lately. I see clearcuts everywhere I go, it seems. People think that 'slash-and-burn' only happens in the Amazon. It is happening right across the street from my house. Treating forests only as commodities degrades our moral relationship with the ecosystems they support. Razing a forest razes our spiritual tie with the land. One of a miniature triptych of 3x3" acrylic and ink works on paper.
