About this piece:
This Light Grey Art Lab residency, with the Team Merlin group, is the second time I've been to Iceland. My first trip in 2013 changed my life--for awhile, there wasn't a day that went by that I didn't think about it. That was the first time I had ever traveled to a different country, and Iceland is such a unique and beautiful place that feels ancient, and almost supernatural.

This second trip felt much different to me. Iceland was still as beautiful and mysterious as ever, but it became the backdrop for meeting a group of people. I don't know how to explain how everyone in Team Merlin immediately hit it off. I've been in art groups and gone on art camps/residencies/workshops before; I've even helped run a few. There was something so effortlessly comfortable about hanging out with our team, and the desire to talk and connect with them was so strong. I have been a longtime fan of the TV show "Lost", and this is the closest experience I've had to something like that--a group of strangers becoming family-friends.

Lately I've been taking to drawing environments and pieces of environments, because I feel that they can often portray a collective of people in a way portraits can't. This is the home base of Team Merlin, "the Island" where we became friends.
