The Seven Strands

The number seven is a mystical number, and inspired my zenwork “The Seven Strands” and its accompanying poem: “In seven strands our secrets lie, to life and matter and substance, consciousness and love. Miracles as diverse, unique as we each are - yet all equally belong and form a bond knit so strong, fusing our reality into one with might, keep us from the dark, the night, of nothingness of silent void. They are the music we hear, they are our senses, our sight, the dawn of our creation, from dust and particles and light.”

My Zenworks express my love of pen and ink and a desire to meld symbolism with abstract imagery created through spontaneous strokes and repetitive patterns. Zenworks emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.
