Artist Statement: This land is a safe haven for so many birds and people, diverse and vibrant. This land will always be home, and these communities I am a part of will always hold space for me. Being abroad has made me realize that more than ever.

Many of us spread our wings and fly elsewhere, but this land and its waters will always be a place we can call home. A safe place to take refuge, someplace we'll see familiar faces faces, recognize last names, and meet cousins we didn't know we had.

I chose pelicans because of their varied faces. At a distance they are as one, but look closer and you'll see the obvious differences from face to face. I chose them as representatives of our migrating community, our collective and shared identities, our habit of coming home, and the beautiful words and laughter we share when reunited.
