Krab Jab Studio Presents

Arboreal Dreams

February 13th - April 2nd
Opening reception on February 13th, 6-9PM


In this group show, artists were asked to explore their own connection to the nature of trees. Whether they hail from the Pacific Northwest or as far as Belgium, these participating artists visually narrate an arboreal song that weaves together almost seamlessly. The result is as ethereal as it is solid, drawing into the depths of our communal consciousness.

Artist Statement for Burned Forest (Consoling Your Soul)


In recent years, Washington state has suffered from record-breaking heat, devastating drought and widespread forest fires. My sacred mountains were also burned last August. It was devastating, yet really beautiful.


October, 2000 - I visited Riverside, WA for the first time in my life.
October, 2013 - I said goodbye to my mountain life of 12 years, and moved to Seattle.
August, 2015 - We cried over the phone...the Tunk Block fire (part of the Okanogan Complex fire) swept through our precious forest. It burned my ex-husband’s house, garage, my art studio, and everything.
November, 2015 - I finally returned to my sacred home to console all the souls of trees and animals that died in fire. In this great nature all I can do is to create art and pray for the mountains. Through my new series entitled Consoling the Souls, I am also supporting new generations of wildlife and forest regeneration.


Consoling the Souls I


I was deeply overwhelmed by the devastating aftermath,
and felt what I had never felt before
between shadow & light of the burned trees:
something intense and pure, sensuous, rising,
like the birds spinning toward the shining sky.


In the heart of this flame
all my painful memories were fading away.
Catch me now between the destruction and the new beginning.
What it tells me is how I have been loved.
I must love in return with all I have carried.


What we need is here -
Nature knows the way of truth,
the path to the divine oneness.


Breath to breath,
let my heart awake.
With golden revelation
I am slowly healed in beauty.

Akashic Records Series - Book of the Sun

~ Artist Statement for Akashic Records Series ~
The geometric designs and symbols are developed through the many layers and levels of my consciousness that have unfolded in Akashic Records (book of life) Each symbol that evokes an emotional response, and is very personal to me. Also, it can be universal when the viewer interacts with my art. 

I perceive and feel the underlying energy of the universe as I meditate, and recognize that I am nothing and I am everything. The sacred healing energy creates art, and my creativity is the way to open the heart to union with the divine in the laws of cosmos. The subtle vibrational bliss reminds me that there is no boundary, only Oneness, and with Oneness, I find a flame in my breath. All is wholeness dreaming itself alive.

Behind all my visions & words, there is the space of infinite possibility. True love (soulbird) conquers impossibility, and two souls are literally burned together, fused into a single psychic identity. We all become one and return to the divine nest…to the sun, to the moon. We are born again in the womb of the universe.
