work for life

Today, photographing older work from a few years ago... This piece is part of a large movement of my work based on migration and prayer flags.Birds become a symbol of ourselves and a sort of prayer flag, as in Tibetan symbols of offerings for the world carried by the wind. We, as immigrants, movers, travelers, beings of constant change; we are like mobile prayer flags. We have the power to move across this earth as offerings of peace, compassion, and love.

These ideas are still the power behind my present work. Practicing in meditative, repetitive drawings and making flocks of birds from different materials. These represent a practice in quietness and receptivity. These represent my and, I believe, humanity's capacity to live as offerings of goodness and trust.
