“The grasses up north are as blue as jade, Our mulberries here curve green-threaded branches; And at last, you think of returning home” Li Bai
“A feat, this heart’s control
Moment to moment
To scale all love down
To a cupped hand’s size”
Edith Tiempo, Bonsai

“My work is a study in contrasts: light and dark, vertical and horizontal, warm and cool tones, the real and the imagined, as well as the past, present, and future. These elements and others are designed to collide and sometimes find resolution on the surface of the paper. And by so doing, I invite you to take part in my artistic process – not to determine the stories I am telling – but hopefully, to inspire you to tell stories of your own.”
