Spiral Notebook

 

Harmony from chaos: taking the singular elements, shapes and patterns of the west coast landscape, adding sacred symbolic imagery, and reconstructing it to create work that reflects the interconnectedness of all things. The concept of interconnectedness is central to human philosophies as diverse as Zen Buddhism and environmentalism, and is what I believe to be our most important guiding principle. Crows and the sacred symbol of the spiral unite this work. (oil on canvas)


The oldest symbol known to be used in spiritual practices, the spiral is fundamental to nature, appearing on animals such as the snail, seashells, and occurs in natural phenomena such as whirlpools, hurricanes, tornadoes and spinning galaxies. The spiral has become a powerful symbol for creation and growth, used by many ancient cultures and religious traditions. It represents the journey and change of life as it unfolds; taking a labyrinth-like passage that leads to Source. Spirals have been linked to nature, the seasons, and the path of life: birth, growth, death and reincarnation.

Rotary Club

Corvids are clever communicators, as this small series of oil paintings illustrates. Using rotary dial phones and phrases we used to only hear when our telephone communication was restricted to landlines, this work is a humorous nod to our past. (oil on canvas)
