Jeremy Collins came to speak in an open lecture to discuss his experiences combining an interest in mountain climbing with his art and professional life.

“I make art. I always have and know no other way. Sometimes with pen and paper. Sometimes with film and story. Sometimes while climbing rocks. And then I share it. Otherwise what’s the point? I live in a green barn-shaped house with my wife Tricia, and our amazing kids, Zion and Sela.”
