"Painted at the end of a long day in the studio, I was surprised when this piece arrived, seemingly out of nowhere. The luminosity that breaks through hints at an easing within myself. Broader, looser brush strokes captured that way in which, after hours of painting, ones body finally takes over from the mind and sweeps pigments onto surfaces with ease. In retrospect, this piece conjures up my neighborhood walks, rich with trees and structures, that have become a mainstay of my daily routine." — Marilet 

Made from earth pigments and all natural materials, the pieces in this collection are all particles of nature re-formed, connecting the world outside with our worlds indoors. They have a steady presence and are composed of imperfect structures, which despite their irregularities (or perhaps thanks to them) are resilient and flexible, states of being I hope to embody. The imagery used is composed of positive and negative areas which invite the eye to move around, playfully distracting the mind from its preoccupations: a visual meditation of sorts.
