Artist Statement:

How often does a person feel drawn to another, beyond any understanding, forming an immediate bond? Those meetings are few, but precious. There is a sense of communion, of deep harmony, of oneness. To connect with another soul so deeply, folllowing the way of the heart, momentarily transports you into the presence of the world beyond. Roots are planted. A soul mate is found.
