DEAD WEIGHT (2008 - 2017)

Because life is in constant flux and my art practice is not resistant to a change in focus and direction,
this marks the end of an era for Dead Weight.

Attuned with the natural rhythms of the seasons comes the birthing of new ideas and the death of past assumptions and ways of being as a visual artist.

Beyond Dead Weight will be a journey of creativity and care giving in the HERE AND NOW: listening, seeing, feeling, drawing, writing, reflecting, contemplating, questioning, dreaming, seeking, asking, connecting, growing, being.

Near or far,
To each other linkèd are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star…
