This is my absolute favorite time and place to run in Manhattan, just as the sun is setting on the West Side Highway off of Cristopher Street. Next to the horizon, my heart beats to the swift rhythm of my feet. I feel as beautiful inside as my surroundings.
This amazing piece impressively integrates architecture with nature. Frank Lloyd Wright designed Falling Water (1939) in a way that allows the occupants to live with the surrounding environment. This is the idea that I would like to adopt in my own future works.
Though probably not my best work, this is the piece that holds the most meaning to me. While sketching the contours of my hand with a random object I learned about myself as an artist. Upon completion, I knew at that moment that I wanted to combine art with my career.
