Hi I\'m Zal. I was born in the desert (what\'s up Tucson!) and live in the maritime-near rainforest (hello, Seattle!) My love affair/addiction to Art began early with lots of Legos and Science Fiction (read: Socially Awkward). Art making has functioned in my life as an escape, as a discipline, a method of self-discovery, a way to focus and heal myself from the pain and confusion of the world and as a celebration of That Which I Find Beautiful, and interesting.
