The push and pull of art and life.

Being uncomfortable can be teacher. Discomfort can be hard to stay with and push against. Learning how to, simply be, is challenging, so I try to work it out with my art work.

finding my balance by falling down

Sometimes life feels like you are walking on a tightrope over the Grand Canyon without a net.

But what most of us don’t realize including myself, that we’re not that high off the ground. When we fall and we all do, it will hurt. And we have to learn to be with our pain, both of the heart and physical.

Learning how to be on the tightrope is a way to find our internal balance.
