a not quite touching...
when the world stands still
and all things are possible.
In that moment exists the question...
collapse and chaos
or balance and growth?
I have always been fascinated by geology, rock formations, shells and beach combings.
Out of my dreams come colorful images of these shapes and forms, at once real, and yet unreal, held together in the most delicate balance, reflecting the uncertainty of life’s passages.
My life on the central coast of California offers endless inspiration and an overflowing vessel for my exp0lorations of oil, watercolor, sculpture, mixed media jewelry, even whimsical drawings… each seems to hold its own piece of this puzzle of balance.
