I was touched by the wonderful response to my latest feature show when darkness comes. I never imagined that my art and prose would connect with so many people. At the reception in May, several people spoke with me about their own struggles with depression, and how my work resonated with their own experiences. Some spoke to me about loved ones who struggle, and how they could see aspects of them in my art. And at least one gallery visitors told me the show opened her eyes to issues she really didn’t know much about.
I was also honored to have an article about my show and my own experiences featured in The Beaverton Valley Times. Writer Blair Stenwick captured my story in a way that I hope others can relate to also. And my art was beautifully featured in the printed version, shown here. (Thank you Kevin McConnell for photos of my art, and Rene’ Carroll for the photo in the studio.) Click here read the online version.

facing the abyss
I feel the abyss
enormous and consuming.
I look into it
and I feel small.
if I fall in
there is no me … anymore.
