Giving Form to the Intangible

The challenge is to create an authentic, primal reality, as vital as any living experience in the elemental world of nature, including human nature. The process is inclusive. I initiate it with color and gesture, maintaining its raw form by working with imperfections and oddities as well as reverence and its transcendent moments. There is a pulse, a heartbeat, physical action and a seeking to convey and to understand my resonance in the world. Tangible poetry is the outcome.
