Spirit dancing grew and, began as life of its own and keeps evolving. I am a photographer, painter and collagist. This group integrates all these disciplines. I am enamored by trees -- their size, texture, poetry. The many incarnations they go through each season. How they stand apart or merge with one another. The series began with photos which I painted, cut and pasted. I was able to achieve texture which I couldn’t achieve with photos or paint.
In addition to photographs I have taken and manipulated, I am utilizing oriental papers, which are so organic and relate to nature. When used with various mediums these fiber like papers blend with other materials, creating exotic, depth. and texture. The entire process is both physical and spiritual.
