From the Seed

The egg series started as a tribute to the cycle of life. There is an understanding among humans that the concept of birth, life and death is something so miraculous and incredible that it plagues our minds with awe. The egg series uses the symbol of the egg to represent fertility and reproduction in a unique, metaphorical way that alludes to the importance of the role the earth plays within this concept. In the great circle of life, we are born from and also return to the earth. There is a richness in exploring the diversity of earth's living things and in this series I am discovering the intricacies of nature through art as it relates to the idea of the cycle of life and using egg imagery to symbolize that.
