JULY ART SHOW
Life is Art Exhibit
My inspiration comes from my own experiences and perspectives; growing up in the Pacific Northwest, traveling along the Pacific Coastlines to Mexico, living on a sailboat, homesteading on a small remote island surrounded by the Salish Sea, and now setting roots in the desert of Arizona nestled in the Sonoran Desert.
It is my hope that my work will stir something in you. That you will find meaning in the colors, the movement, the texture, or the patterns. That it will remind you of something you forgot, a feeling, or a moment. I hope the way the colors mix incite wonder, or the different materials make you curious. I hope it moves you with joy in the light or heartbreak in the darkness.
Lichen are symbiotic organisms composed of fungi, green alga and cyanobacterium. They are an indicator species for nitrous oxides- greenhouse gases emitted from vehicle exhaust and the burning of coal, oil, diesel fuel, and natural gas, especially from electric power plants. Studying lichen species can tell us a lot about the environmental health of a particular region.
