Rendered in watercolor, ink and charcoal, Travelers and Crossing are part of a series that speaks to a current and pervasive sense of dislocation. Unmoored and groundless, without a center of rationality and equilibrium, we journey in search of meaning both personal and global. I have stripped away all but what is essential in an intimate exploration not in things that are extraordinary, but from things that make up the substance of our everyday lives.
