Artist Statement and Bio

The Luminous Veil is a series of images created in a variety of SF Bay Area public parks and gardens.The parks, some as small as a city block, others encompassing an entire mountain, are natural but man made at the same time. One feels a sense of escape but still feels protected by the familiar. It is the transition between the familiar and the unknown that I wanted to capture. Some mystics believe there is a thin space in certain places where the gulf between us and the divine is not so wide. It is that sense of presence that I wanted to communicate. The idea that in the midst of our busy and challenging lives there is sanctuary that we can tap into for soothing and strength.
