The longing, love and often desperate interaction between humans, animals, plants and our Earth home is what has driven me to uncover my own unique path in the world of art.  It is the pull of the heart, the ache of something within, the expression of self through movement – the knowing but not yet seeing – this is the force behind an artform not yet developed within me, but wanting to emerge. Although most comfortable with the written word, the tensile nature of fiber and sound healing through the use of Gong, my work has now begun to include additional media for a more expansive study of myself.
Mandala Days revealed to me, an otherwise hidden way into the infinite world both within and beyond myself. Working with the Mandala, the Universe, the Self has revealed to me, the possibility of true self-expression.
