The central line that is prevalent in most of the work is the first line drawn, and is an unconscious representation of the spinal column, which is the first thing that forms in the body.
My intimate connection with the spine is derived from my Cranio Sacral practice, and I often incorporate my art as a healing force during a session. Art can free the body's healing mechanisms, working to unite body, mind and spirit, facilitating transformation in both the artist and the viewer.
I am inspired by beginnings, the underlying nature of light, yoga and the breath, nature, spiritual work and relationships. These influences, all hovering just below the surface, become expressed through my art almost like a mandala.
The eggshell pieces are created in mosaic form, which gives me a feeling of working within a sculptural format. Small, precise and textural, they offer a sense of movement and shifting plays of light. The nature of mosaics are to simultaneously expose both the process and the completed, the minute parts and the whole. They inspire patience and perseverance and a sense of fragment restored to a cohesive harmony -- central themes in my life.
