About the piece: When Cactus Gallery first asked me to do the HOMES show I was in Steamboat, Colorado, a place I called home for much of my 20s. I had torn the cartilage in my knee the day before snowboarding, a good reminder of why I left.
My move to Southern California was a good one but I miss the isolation of the mountains. In this piece I dreamt up my ultimate treehouse by the sea overlooking a point break.
