mixed media // plexi tree

So much of what inspires me to create is being hands on. It's not just taking images with my camera, it's what I can do with them after. I created this piece in college using an image of an oak tree printed on Lazertran and then transferred to the plexi. The idea was to bring the natural elements inside, while still allowing for the work to emanate from the natural light of the sun. This piece represents the bridging of natural with the constructed, a way to balance feng shui and to reconnect your mind with outside stillness.

mendocino | six years later

Six. Six years ago we were married under an alter of cypress trees with the meditative sound of crashing waves lapping at the cliffs below. The whipping wind sending shivers down my spine. Six years later we stand hand in hand at that very spot staring out at that endless horizon. The Cypress Grove. It’s majestic, healing vibes are felt the moment you arrive. 

My mind jumps back through it’s catalog of photographical memories filling in the gap of time from then to now. Joys, success, setbacks, and so, so much love. He grips my hand tighter as if he knows my mind had wandered. Returning to this place only strengthen the vows we first took.

The girls run among the tall grasses and we hear giggles at our feet. We’ve built so much and have a lifetime to go. Life is good. Life is fleeting. This feels right. Slowing down and taking the time to be, reading paper, not screens. Being here, feeling the wind at my face. Grateful for six.
