Though schooled in the philosophy and practice of Modernism I have always been drawn to ancient sources of knowledge and truth.  In recent years, my work has developed around the primeval story in the stars as recorded from pre-Chaldean times.  My aim to depict this story as geological mapping reflects the “fixed” nature of the stars referenced.  This metaphor of stars as stone developed from an initial spark regarding the relationship of starlight and color light from crystal formations.
