* Inspiration – Gregory Colbert’s Feather to Fire

Moments that take your breath away … as you pause in awe … and feed your very being.

In exploring the shared language and poetic sensibilities of all animals, I am working towards rediscovering the common ground that once existed when people saw themselves as part of nature and not outside of it. The destiny of whales cannot be separated from the destiny of man, and the destiny of man cannot be separated from the destiny of all of nature. I am exploring new narratives that help build a bridge across the artificial boundaries we have established between ourselves and other species.

  2. Extraordinary and dreamlike, nothing to compare it with. Except that, in Thailand, I’ve seen the imagery of a child laid down, resting with head placed on grandmother’s knee like a pillow, as she sits with crossed legs. Universality…
