This body of print work investigates my awareness of spirituality as it quietly bumps into my every day life and experience, letting the world wash over me. Making this work comes from a balanced duality— building the collagraph (printing) plates is very spontaneous, often letting the materials guide me; and then printing the plates becomes more controlled and deliberate, like the structure of a daily meditation practice. These prints are iterations of my life’s journey, tapping into and evoking all the senses. They are the rise and fall of breath, the fleeting moments of light moving from day into night, and each awe-inspiring moment in between.
