“It is about whether your identity has been and is being in some way shaped by that place; having a sense that its stories, its topography, its weather, have formed you - formed your character and your values”
- If Women Rose Rooted, The Power of the Celtic Woman, by Sharon Blackie

Finding Myself in a Vase of Flowers
Mixed media collage work with plant-based pigments
Earth: the third planet from the sun; home
Bound: from Middle English boun, from Old Norse būinn, to dwell, prepare
As we traverse the terrain, shores, and deep earth artifacts, we ask…what marks have we made? Amidst the turbulent seas of beauty and decay, death and rebirth, the creative spirit is thriving. The artist eye sees a shard of discarded plastic and spins this litter into a tool. Digging into the strata of dirt, clay, limestone, the grittiness of earth is exposed, and our ashes of hand bind us back to the earth.
Created in the Wild
A year of creating outdoors in the wild. Solar energy, rain water, plant-derived pigments.
Potentialities, maps to the future, paths back to the past
