Quiet Overture

This series is an overture — a reflection on growth, motherhood and the unfolding of life through the divine, whole and innocent offering of my child as the mirror. Memories and emotions stilled in time and layered in experience and nostalgia. Occasionally blurry, sometimes buried within and often dreamlike or elusive, each moment represents the freedom of possibility and the continuous invitation to return, to heal, and to begin anew. These images offer the opportunity to pause, reconnect to lost parts and to contemplate an awareness that everything we require is already within, in the quiet presence of the true self.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour

– William Blake
