I moved more than 14 times before I was even nine years old. My family uprooted my brother and I so many times, it was crazy. Being shy, it was difficult to make new friends. Each house would feel like a new "home" because I was fooled into thinking it would be. And as I got older, all I wanted was a house of my own that I would be able to stay in for the rest of my life. I'd construct little dream homes in my mind and in my art. The visions have never gone away.
