“I began incorporating eyes in 2013 into my work after I started seeing them everywhere they were not -street detritus, peeling paint, knots in wood, the space between things. It felt tied to a sense of groundedness and good energy. I am drawn to how eyes have many deep meanings - protective, mystical, enlightening - throughout history and across cultures, eliciting a strong connection with the viewer.
I get lost in the process of making Spirit Eyes. Sculpting the clay by hand and carving my designs is meditative, calming, and brings good energy.”
