I have often tried to imagine if it would be possible for people to live in a non-destructive way, in complete non-harm to earth and life; using only that which replenishes or is returned in kind. With topsoil unencrusted, covered with vegetation. The lands, waters and air unpoisoned, and all species thriving We are so very far from that now that the idea is almost impossible to imagine. It would be a very different way of life than the one we have developed – but I can’t help but feel that if we had started this way we could have produced a comfortable life for our species. Simply by asking prior to each action, “Do I harm life and earth?”

My art, and my heart, speaks to this question, sometimes screaming and direct, at other times more subtly. But be assure the question is always there.
