The Great Spirit and all the creatures in nature communicate to us in our daily lives, but we must be perceptive to the messages and signs that they hold. Native American culture and values have long resonated with me because of their deep emphasis on respect, appreciation and preservation of nature’s eco-systems. My process is deeply spiritual and my work is an expression of prayer, depicting organic images as sacred artifacts and communicating earth’s cyclical and ever-evolving patterns, leading viewers to feel the healing power and spiritual guidance of nature. Human civilization has a moral obligation to take an active role in the environmental crisis our planet is facing. My hope is to sensitize people to these challenges and emphasize the crucial need for each of us to re-consider our every day actions, which leave a permanent footprint behind and disturb the earth’s natural rhythms.
