Patterns for Living


“Patterns for Living” is series grounded in the idea that our lives are built on experiences, one stacked upon another. People come into and go out of our lives and leave their unique mark. Events happen and leave their impact. It’s similar to the process of weaving of a tapestry, one thread after another, each one important, where the subsequent couldn’t exist without the one that proceeded it. When looked upon as a whole, it’s an evolution of reinventing or reincarnating oneself into becoming the most human and humane. In essence, this series pays tribute to our personal landscapes that depict all the bumps and vistas along the way.

NOTE: Each of the individual works are 7”x 5” are matted to 14”x 11”.
