Up in the air
With no place to go
Trying to cope with
A state of suspension
Uncertain of tomorrow
Will there be a tomorrow
For all of us
What will normal look like

In the meantime
We eat strawberries in purgatory
On hold
But consuming what we can
While we can

Out on a limb
Hung out to dry
Gathering once a week
Scrolling through phones
Looking for a truth
Or inspiration
Or someone to talk to
Connecting with people who live
Beyond the ocean
While Masked out in our own neighbourhood

Living in limbo
Floating hopes across the sky.

The best advice I've come across about creating is "To create what you want to look at..." I love to look at work that is ambiguous and suggestive; work that leaves room for the imagination of the viewer. Thus, I aspire to create a spirited body of work I define as "otherly". My art is ever evolving based upon recent experiments, research, discoveries and inspirations.
Thank you for taking the time to look!
