"The great lesson from the true mystics is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is found in one's daily life... in one's own backyard." - Abraham Maslow
I believe that healing and radical change, for both individuals, communities, and the world as a whole, can come from changing how we interact with Nature. When I sit down to make art, my goal is to allow myself to be a conduit for that awe-inspiring, healing energy I experience through the plants I interact with. These are usually very common plants, the kind you might walk by everyday and never notice. By creating mandala-inspired designs and art out of botanical materials, I invite the viewer into a meditation on the sacred peace, wisdom, empowerment, and oneness that we can find in even the most common plants. I hope to make this "ordinary" beauty more visible to others in their own environments and to be a part of changing the way we interact with the Sacred in everything and every one around us.
