Image Statement: It’s fascinating to see what new wave images appear through constant motion. Recently photographs of my textiles blowing in the wind have taken on a new life of their own. When my images of flowing waves were featured in our church’s virtual service on baptism, they were viewed with a deeper connection to my faith. As an entry to the exhibition “Splash”, these waves bring me back to the beach where I find peace and inspiration in the beauty of nature. My childhood memories flash back to days with family and friends by the ocean at our summer house. There by the water, I am at awe of nature…connecting to that innocent childlike play that is so refreshing to experience again and again.
