Artist’s statement: “As an artist who revels in working alone, the idea of collaborating with anyone is a bit daunting. However, the process of taking former work and revitalizing it with Magnolia Editions was such an enlightening and rewarding experience. Together we created three prints that are a vision of one’s serenity and ethereal relationship with time. They speak to the human experience of being connected to one’s past, present, and future.”
