UPON MY RETURN
Last September, my life tipped over, and its contents spilled out. I decided to return to Whitefish, the best community I know, to start fresh. This show is a presentation of this year's healing process. Recurring themes of shelter, protection, and emergence thread through the pieces.
The use of nontraditional materials is a favorite curiosity of mine. I have been working with seaweed for some time now, and have recently added wasp nest paper, onion skins, birch bark, bone, eggs, horns, and palm fronds to the mix.
Many friends have contributed to this show, either with painted papers and found objects, or help with power tools and logistics. My heart-felt thanks to them, to Stillwater Gallery for this wonderful opportunity, and to all who take the time to engage in this visual discussion.
