In my memory of childhood, those most shiny are of the hours left to my devices in a family friend’s jewelry studio, surrounded by metal bits, wire, beads, and anything I could engineer to swing from an earring hook. An unavoidable sense of alignment fills me as I find myself on this path now.
I call my work Mind’s Eye Collective as it is the realm behind my eyes, where the weights of mundanity do not apply, a space that feels like the peachfuzz of a pleasant and familiar dream and the unbounded, possibility of a cloudless sky.
There is so much to explore in the world that blooms around us, and, perhaps even more so, in the universe within us. My inspiration for Mind's Eye comes from the personal mythologies we carry, nature, the conscious and unconscious understanding that flows between all things, and the and the vast magic of the mind that allows sight far beyond the capacity of the eye.
