When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,
and when we escape like squirrels turning in the
cages of our personality
and get into the forests again,

we shall shiver with cold and fright
but things will happen to us
so that we don’t know ourselves.

Cool, unlying life will rush in,
and passion will make our bodies taut with power,
we shall stamp our feet with new power
and old things will fall down,

we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like
burnt paper.

-D.H. Lawrence

Contact me:

I am a freelance artist living in northern California. All natural elements in my assemblages are fallen, found, gifted; never harvested, purchased, hunted. Contact me about artistic collaboration, commission work, illustration or installation. Or, send me your name and email if you'd simply like to be on my mailing list and receive (very infrequent) updates. Thank you.

Thank you!
