Artist Statement:

It is true for all those who work creatively - we create best totally immersed, blending body, mind and spirit. This way we work from the heart. Totally immersed in the experience, a portal opens, and we are in the realm of the Muse. This is a visual expression of being in a place of 'oneness'.

"The whole universe is alive and everything is connected to everything else by threads of meaning."

~ The Amber Spyglass ~ by Philip Pullman
