ARTIST'S STATEMENT

A woman is a creator of life
She is gentle and soft
yet commands strength and toughness
Like a water stream
She knows to lower herself to the ground with a saturating touch
A woman bares, hugs, nurtures and protects
She quietly waits and generously gives
like the bountiful earth

In the chaining darkness she might be frail and weak
And yet with a fiery passion she lifts off into the world
unable to bear the lightness of being
Her amazing energy blooms into a white flower
Her warm, longing gaze searching
For her dream and love
