About the author

There is tangible, recognizable connective tissue that connects my work. From the vastness of the cosmos to the intricate branching patterns within each of our life-giving cells,. I am drawn to the primordial spirals and organic structures and flow of nature. I am fascinated, in particular, with the liminal state: the stage of in between, where massive dissolution of order occurs; where ambiguity and disorientation are the natural precursors to change. From this chaotic, fertile void, a fluid and malleable state occurs and births new order, no longer who we were, and not yet who we will become, new customs, new structures… each unique, yet universally familiar. From expansion to contraction; from birth to death; from structure to chaos, the universe mimics the neuroplasticity of a giant brain, and the brain mirrors the expanse of the entire cosmos… and beyond. Each moment is unique. Each moment is identical. I attempt to capture the states and stages of the dynamic energy that surrounds and fills us, constantly shifting and transforming, too small to understand and too vast to comprehend… and recognizing that the patterns of change are the only constant we have.
