This series is very different from much of my other work. It began in the spring of 2003. The pieces reflect some meditations on memory, pain, healing and love. To date I have as completed over fifty works in this series. They all involve the image of a heart, and have to do with a progression – or journey. As it has developed, the heart has come to represent less something immediately personal, and more a representation of a force within us all, something that tries to learn and grow.
