ANCIENT OCEAN
ANCIENT OCEAN

This piece was inspired by hikes I used to take in the Monzano and Sandia mountains outside of Albuquerque, NM. The long vistas of the high desert landscape look like the bottom of the ocean-- and of course they once were. The fan shape creates a feeling of both movement and stillness that I am using more and more in my work.

THE GREEN BEYOND
THE GREEN BEYOND

I lived in an urban environment for over 20 years and had created a green oasis inside the walls of my tiny courtyard. I am intrigued by the intersection between nature and the city and I tried to overlap it here in this piece the way it's overlapped in my life.

I wanted to capture that feeling of lush green with a scintillating light.

Time is a River

WHAT HOPE LOOKS LIKE
WHAT HOPE LOOKS LIKE

This is my idea of what hope might look like. A lake at sunrise. A promising distant view. It's a new day.

STRENGTH TOTEM
STRENGTH TOTEM

Everyday objects often have a very totemic or iconic quality for me--this piece started from a strangely shaped envelope. I like the idea of spirit being in everything, giving us what we need, and emerging whenever we're willing to see it.

BUT I AM THE FIRE
BUT I AM THE FIRE

This dragonfly is my version of the phoenix--both rising up and and being lifted into the perfection of the glowing circle because nobody does it alone. Hope. Love. Transformation.

BOLETOS
BOLETOS

Boletos' means 'tickets' in Spanish. When I made this piece, I was thinking about the personal implications of taking the risk to cross the border--the fear, the lack of control people must feel, and the real life difficulties that drive people to take that risk.
