“Blue lines with and without shell" looks to the impermanence of things - what the ocean waves bring in and what it takes away.  Always changing - never stagnant.

The idea of doing what you did as a child has interested me of late.  Like swinging on a swing gives me a sense of timelessness or doing a cart wheel and turning my world upside down.

This piece began more in the light being the mirror image to “More 1”.   It has some of my ‘ten commandments’ written on it… More water, More connection, More laughter.  I guess you really need to ask for what you want  in order for the universe to deliver.

This piece has gone through many transformations and layers - it represents my own transition from darkness into light.  Sometimes it is a daily journey.  I try not to question - just accept.
