STATEMENT

My work is a meditation on the physical self as a vessel to receive cosmic lessons from the spirit realm. The women characters engage in playful explorations of their selves, and of each other, as they tumble around the invisible, inner world. Both light and shadow are threaded to discover our paths to our highest beings.
