As long as I can remember I've felt a deep connection with Mother Earth. She summons us in countless ways and I believe we hear her voice when we listen from our deepest heart space. Her essence is expressed in all life, everywhere. Her rhythms and imprints can be witnessed in the tiniest blade of grass pushing up through a crack in the pavement, to the glory of a sunrise - her valleys, her mountains, her water womb, her infinite creatures great and small ... every tree and flower - her crystal and mineral kingdoms.
These feminine expressions speak to my relationship with the Mother Earth. Each Healing Voice is a labor of love created entirely by hand.
Nourished by a deep and sacred connection to the Divine in all things, I draw upon the stories, rituals, tradition and mythologies of all cultures as points of reference for my art. These stories and mythologies speak to me of our beginnings, of how together we form an intricate network , a tapestry of which we are all apart. My intention is to imprint these Healing Voices with all of this: to invoke the harmonic resonance of sound and sacred geometry, the metaphysical information of stones, crystals and other gifts from the Earth. I believe everything on Earth holds information for us - stories held in her ancient library helping us remember ourselves.
Within each sculptural image I have placed a crystal or gemstone wrapped in a bundle of sacred healing herbs.
Driftwood is often incorporated into the healing sculptural representations. These battered, bleached fragments with their diverse shapes are metaphors for our lives and the journeys we make.
I enjoy using recycled materials, recognizing this as a way to soften my imprint on the Earth - bone, stone, feathers, shells, clay, raw crystals, mosses to name a few. Everything lends meaning.
It is my hope these Healing Voices will resonate with aspects of you, assisting you in remembering how TRULY AMAZING you are, how interconnected we all are.... And, in your remembering - may you sing your heart's melody, for truly it is the most beautiful song of all.
~Figures may be commissioned~
It is always an honour to create a sculptural representation to honour aspects of another.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in a healing voice of your own, or should you have any questions or thoughts concerning this process.
