The vision of Beauty Revealed emerged into my consciousness over a decade ago during meditative hikes in the woods. As I aged, my attention shifted during these hikes from the splendor of living trees to the beauty and grandeur of dead ones. Beyond appreciating their appearance, I became attuned to the inherent wisdom retained in the “dead” wood. As the artist, I do no carving or sculpting. Meticulously using clay, wax and dental tools, the Beauty is Revealed for each piece as I remove the decaying wood, leaving behind the tree’s essence. Each piece is named for its healing property which is expressed to me as I work with the wood.Visiting artist exhibiting at Bee's Crossing Studio.
