Artist Statement

 

 

Small invisible words

strewn through the air.

 

They flutter as leaves

And fall to the ground

in the nonsensical pattern

of a poem.

 

Drawing. 

to bridge the gap.

between voice and silence.

to bridge the gap

 ...

To find & hold

the thread

that breaths in harmony 

and live this life

in peace
