In my career as a psychotherapist I found meditating on the natural world offered respite from clients’ emotional storms. When I slow down, watch, and wait, life unfolds its mysteries and things that are familiar to me give way to fields of color, shape, and texture. I begin as the observer, watching as ephemeral patterns emerge and dissolve, each moment a unique confluence of light and object. And then, life’s chaos resolves into a deeply satisfying feeling of connection. In this series I’ve created intimate portraits that give form to the magic and mystery that I feel, and challenge the viewer to experience the extraordinary that is in the ordinary.
