The Stillness Series

In April of 2020 I read an article that stated: "In rebuilding a broken world we will have the chance to choose a less hurried life." As I reflect upon last year, I am grateful for my work and time spent within my studio. The ideas of stillness and connection that have long been the focus of my practice now resonate in a more profound way. The Stillness Series was born out of a search for light and balance in a time of chaos. With this work, I explore the ideas of light and balance through the lens of strength: the strength that exists somewhere between the stillness of solitude and the energy of connection.
