The Koi Pond Series grew out of an intention to feel centered or grounded in a time of
transition. Our family relocated to Pennsylvania, and our new home has a beautiful koi
pond stocked with fish in the backyard. This has become a sanctuary for me to sit,
meditate, practice yoga, and paint.
Pond life is continually moving and changing with the weather, the seasons, as well as
moment to moment. Some of the smaller pieces are snapshots - moments frozen in
time. The larger paintings and mixed media drawings are more like the water itself,
constantly in flux, with life shifting above and below the surface. Process and presence
are part of an ongoing investigation and connection to something larger than self.
Hope to see you there!
