Art Making: My Process
For me, art is not only the method of my own spiritual practice and my vocation, but also a way for me to companion others as they seek to express the movements of their lives in symbolic form. Some moments catch hold of us and glow with significance: a potent dream image, a decade birthday, recovery from an illness, a grieving. These and other life transitions hold mysterious meaning and merit celebration or even ritual in order to honor the deeper voices of one’s journey. I believe that what moves through one’s life, one’s body/soul, one’s heart/mind is the proper material for art-making and is what constitutes the location of the sacred.
My Specialty: Soulful Design
I specialize in custom projects which involve a profound collaboration with the client, and discernment about what may be emerging and seeking expression in consciousness. ·Often clients have some meaningful object, a gemstone, a family heirloom, some gold to melt down, etc. from which they would like to create a new image. My goal is for the final product to be a sort of birthed work, reflecting both the client’s intuition and my own, gestated in contemplation and executed through deep listening, design consultation, and finally by my technical and artistic skill.
In this spirit, I accept commissions to create jewelry, sculpture or drawings for my clients. It may also be that some of the existing works on my site speak to you. If so, please feel free to inquire about availability and pricing.
