Biography


How often do we look up from what we are doing and appreciate the world that we are part of? Everything in our landscape is commonplace—the trees, clouds, water, rocks and sky are absolutely ordinary, and yet they are also completely magical. I want people to enjoy the magic of our ordinary world—to have a place to gaze and remember that we are not just our jobs, or our stories about ourselves, or our worries. We are part of something inexplicable, ungraspable, and luminous. We need this point of balance in our culture of striving and busyness.

 
In my work, I spend time looking at and responding to our ordinary, magical world. Through attention, I offer a visible expression of feelings that are often invisible or unspoken--feelings of mystery, inspiration, connectedness, interdependence, the preciousness of life, and the sweet-sadness of the fleeting nature of all things.
