Whether I work rotating the piece from side to side during its creation, incorporate actual circular kinetics to the finished piece or simply place the circle in pictorial form, the circle is centering and appears, in one way or another, in most of my work. It helps me to begin a dialogue, creating a steady awakening of self, reality and other dimensions. I bring all aspects of life into one harmonious coexistence. As life itself, the circular form is the beginning and the end. On a personal level, it defines gratitude and survival. I use this circle as a reminder of my gratitude for life and it’s constant movement of energy, whose center resonates with the essence of everything.
This is a symbol that has come through my work for several years now. It is a symbol of hope. A symbol that we can climb out of anything if we choose to make that first step.
