This world, this universe is part of me; everything seen and unseen, a delicate and intricate exchange that is the strength of life and the fruit of death. A flower exhales and I breathe in. I gather morning dew with the spider. My veins are tangled in roots. I plant my feet in stardust heavens and shed light beneath the surface. The past few years I took on the care of my aging mother as she became engulfed by dementia. Through this process, I found a renewed connection with the transfer of life through death and death through life. This body of work symbolizes my personal desire to live aware and grateful for this exchange that ages and renews.
