"Enraptured by Stillness,
Immersed in Love,
Upheld by Grace.
Who I truly am."
Over the last three months, these works have been my daily meditation. A returning, if you will, to Stillness. Letting my roots go deeper in this winter season, and continuing to accept the "isness" of each moment.
Each piece is a reflection of the beauty that has been imprinted on my being through my childhood connection with nature. These impressionistic, modern landscapes are meant to be a reminder to always return to that inner Stillness that is the essence of who we truly are.

I started this collection over a year ago, pre-pandemic, having no idea of what the proceeding months would bring in our world. I feel, as many of you, like my whole life has been upended. I've come to so many realizations about myself, my beliefs, my core values in the midst of the fires burning all around us.
Rebirth, to me, is an awareness that the present moment is all there is, and everything that I need is contained in it. It is a deep knowing that as I accept what is, right here and now, that everything will be as it needs to be. Each moment is an opportunity to be reborn, to experience Life, the fullness of Life in every life situation.
Flowers...nature in general, but flowers especially speak to me about the power of being. Flowers do not need to know their name, they do not care if you see them or not, they just ARE. They embody total yielding to what is, and their beauty, essence, and even their fragrance emanate without any need or desire to be anything better or greater.
This is how I desire to live. To not be caught up in whether someone sees me or accepts me, to not be concerned with always trying to be better or do more or acquire more things. I simply want to Live, fully engulfed in the Loving Awareness that is the very essence of Life Itself. And whatever comes out of this moment, I simply want to be here for it.
A little reminder for you today...
You are Perfect just as you are.
You are Loved.
You are not alone.
