ARTIST STATEMENT

As water in the light
As leaves dropping across shadow
As mist on stone
As beings in motion, so to all are we compelled to shimmer

The mixed media works presented here, in their best moments, are meant to awaken a place within the spectator, perhaps, of memory, or anamnesis, or a quality of some ancient sound or scent, land or distance, an atmosphere of a sacred universal beauty and mystery greater than ourselves. Thank you for your openness to participate within this process.
