Striving to reflect an emergence from the daily complex incongruities we experience and to rise from the ground with beauty and grace as does a flower. That which a butterfly does when it flies over traffic at a stop light. Challenging us to rise with hope and possibilities from the shadowy confines of internal and external walls. To work towards inclusion rather than exclusion. Focusing on connection, understanding, respect. Textiles. Vintage. New. techniques. A myriad of cultures and cultures. Interpretations of color and light to transcend as a flower breaking through the ground.
