What is the meaning of doing art for you?
Making art for me is like breathing. Without it my spirit
would die. This act of creating is not separated from my
daily life; it all flows together.
Some of how I create today stems from my experience
as a young girl. While my mom and grandmother would
tell stories and share their dreams from the night before
I would make things. I was very inspired by them and
I would listen with my ears, eyes and heart while my
hands began to use elements from nature to make things.
It was, and still is, magical for me.
For many years now, I have let my nightly dreams and
dream states be the channel through which I arrive at
the form and content of my art work. My art is the
expression of an interchange between two very divergent
ways of seeing the world, the intuitive and the rational.
It is my desire to give voice to the invisible reality, crossing
the boundary of the known into the mystery, from which,
since the beginning of time, travelers have returned with
sacred, spiritual, and alchemical revelations.
I feel it is through this process of alchemy that I have
sought to bring harmony to myself through my art.
