When I first started my art journey here in the Bay 5 years ago, I was focused on telling the stories of others. My art today is much more about my own journey of facing fears, self doubt, and understanding the real power within myself, and all of us.
My current body of work, entitled “Broken Symmetry”, explores themes of where we come from, where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going -- which is all happening now. Over the years, I’ve been drawn to space, planets, the principles and mysteries in modern astrophysics without much of the spiritual overtones. The planets represent home, safety, rootedness, and support. The rope represents DNA, which connects all living things in our reality. The flora represents our potential, growth, wisdom, and those miracles of which we are capable of achieving in our lives. Time is an illusion, as we know, and the only things we really have control over are in the present moment. As you move through this collection, I invite you to reflect on and celebrate where you feel safe and grounded, where you have control (your reactions), and entertain dreams for your ultimate potential. As the wise Carl Jung said, “Whatever you resist, persists. And whatever you embrace, dissolves.” We all deserve a life filled with peace, calm, and love -- and the journey starts within you.
