In creating this series of work, I found myself drawn to twisting florals and vines as if being cocooned by nature. All through the spring and summer, I have found solace and comfort through walking in nature, appreciating the wildflowers and birds inhabiting this beautiful New Mexico landscape. This fall is especially beautiful, the Aspens gilding the mountains with their golden leaves. I return to the recurring theme of Flora and Fauna to explore our relationship with Nature and that of Love and Loss because it is a time of strengthening our relationships with each other and a time of grief and hope.

Beloved,
In what other lives or lands
Have I known your lips
Your Hands
Your Laughter brave
Irreverent.
Those sweet excesses that
I do adore.
What surety is there
That we will meet again,
On other worlds some
Future time undated.
I defy my body’s haste.
Without the promise
Of one more sweet encounter
I will not deign to die.
