This series is about surrender. The willingness to stand in the dark unknown yields an unexpected gift. Here it is feathers — a blessing of beauty and a promise of flight.
While making this work, I practiced standing meditation outside at night. If I stood still long enough, a subtle shift would happen and some sense of benevolence would surround me. I wanted these collages – constructed of photo-transparencies, maps, handwriting, stitched tissue and feathers – to honor that feeling of grace.

All works in this series are mixed media collages created with photographic transparencies layered over maps, texts and stitched tissue. All works are unique and are sold framed.
