Tile acrylic hot glue sculpture, $100
Warrior Tree is upright, focused and limber while Elder Tree is gnarled and bent, still full of resiliency… reflecting my feelings of physically aging. Both trees glow along their paths through the world offering different attitudes holding on to similar hopes of survival.
These pieces show the path I have traveled this year thinking on changes in politics and climate, places of regressive rights in the world and defending Mother Earth; which is a home for every person traveling on their own epic journey in these confusing times. Art helps to settle my feelings in a variety of mediums that bring me hope, joy and play. This year has included adventures in natural dyes and weaving in Canada, and finding my feet in a creative center at Pilchuck while printmaking and using hot glass to express myself in new ways, true challenges to my creative journey.
