For many years Iíve
explored issues focused on lifeís frailties and uncertainties.
Inspired by the wisdom
of natureís cycles, Iíve been interested in seasonal births,
metamorphosis, death and regeneration. Iíve been particularly inspired by
the movement of water, experienced in the oceanís waves and other
In my thinking the change of seasons and movement of water connect with
the magical unknown of creativity. Through my own art, combined with
facilitating others, Iíve come to see creativity as a positive embracing
of the unknown. In creativity we welcome uncertainty though in life we
fear the unknown and are scared of change. While these works recognize the
ephemerality of life and nature, they reveal underlying strength, comfort,
beauty and wisdom in uncertainty.
These works integrate ephemeral natural and man-made elements including
milkweed and broken glass. The Fragility of Life glass book, inspired by
holographic installations, is an experimental project to be resolved and
produced in time.
