Journeys We Take To Get Back Home

  • March 16, 2019

This series,"Journeys We Take to Get Back Home", is both literal and metaphorical.
It has me thinking about all the reasons we travel away ...from what we know, where we feel safe... to stretch our boundaries. Maybe learn new things. Definitely to see and experience what is different. Sometimes at the cost of losing what is familiar. And why this process isn't complete until we go BACK home... to process, to integrate... or maybe just to say we've done it.

There are currently 4 pieces in this series. I suspect there may eventually be more.

Maker of Things

The little details, the subtle nuance.
How we feel, what we see and smell and hear.
The distant call of a crow.
The feel of the Spring sun on our face as we emerge from the dark, cold winter.
These are the experiences and layers that interest me.

Because everything is connected to everything.

Our stories may be different but why we tell them is the same.
To feel connected and loved.
To be heard.

Through layers of wax and plaster, paint and photographs.
With rusty nails and found objects and wire.
These are my stories.
