My work is designed to express energy flow, connection, and the interrelationship of all things. I enjoy the creative process, seeing my work evolve, the mystery and the possibilities. Birds inspire me as a symbol of tenuous and delicate balance. Such creatures represent a connection between healthy ecosystems and flourishing human populations. They carry sometimes a song of warning, but also seeds of regeneration and therefore hope for the future.
