What’s Your Story?

What’s Your Story? 

I want to know what makes you tick, your heart sing or stop, to catch your breath.

For me, it’s all about the story- and how we are connected


That’s the premise behind Catch and Release my Solo Exhibition opening February 2, 2014 at Project Space Gallery in Wilmington, DE. 
Catch- What we find  and Release – what we leave behind.

Like objects that wash ashore and become entangled or the scope of fibers one may find in a nest; once castaways, remnants of past lives and experiences become transformed into something altogether new and unique unto itself.

Seemingly unexpected connections emerge to reveal the fragility, beauty, and grace of our lives.”

My work is an ongoing exploration of what sustains us when adversity challenges us. What moves us forward-
and binds us to the past. What we find and what we leave behind. Our stories, our stuff- and how we hold them in our bodies, our hearts, our minds.

So, tell me – What have you inherited or found that you’d like to release?  why?

    Great inspiring blog! I too believe in the stories! People, life and love! How can I be of service? Where can I give and how do I receive? If I can continue my path , my journey and continue to cultivate the meaning of why or just humbling accept, I will know true happiness!

    I am blessed with family and friends!
