The juxtaposition of nature-inspired forms in this piece comes from my long-standing interest in science, coupled with my deep belief that nature is sacred. Transformation 35 combines the spiraling motion of a galaxy with hints of plant forms, with a bird-like shape as the focal point. The soothing blue tones are balanced by the energetic yellow of the spinning galaxy. It will bring a sense of peace and balance into any room in your home.

Transformation 35 is one of an ongoing series of 7 x 7 inch monoprint with mixed media collages that began several years ago. It was actually an act of desperation that gave birth to these pieces. (If you want to find out more, you can read about it on this blog post.) The juxtaposition of nature-inspired forms in this piece comes from my long-standing interest in science, coupled with my deep belief that nature is sacred. We are made of the same elements as the stars and the earth, and so are connected in countless ways. Recent scientific discoveries reveal that we are far more connected to nature than we ever could have imagined.
While making this monoprint with mixed media collage, I was guided by my own impressions of the primal forces of nature, and the unseen energies that flow through us all. This particular piece combines the spiraling motion of a galaxy with hints of plant forms, with a bird-like shape emerging from the center as the focal point. The soothing blue tones are balanced by the energetic yellow of the spinning galaxy. Other media such as colored pencils and watercolor crayons have been added to create a sense of depth.
All of these shapes, colors, and natural forms can be thought of as ‘words’ in the vocabulary of symbols I’ve developed to communicate my experience of the oneness of every thing in nature. First, layers of transparent light-fast inks are built up on sheets of Rives BFK 100% cotton printmaking paper. Then, pieces of these prints are cut out and fitted together to form new compositions. Other media, such as decorative papers, watercolor pencils, and crayons may be added. This piece will bring a sense of peace and harmony to any room in your home or office.
