I am an interdisciplinary artist and author. To consider my influences I return to the beginning. Not only stone, universal symbols, and the mythological but also the personal.
In my mother's journals I found metaphorical descriptions of the tree shadows she played in as a child. She called them coal.
My father asked me a question about a leaf, from the crabapple tree, as we waited for shooting stars, thus activating my imagination.
I am self-trained but taught by everything or fragments thereof I have experienced.
