In 2016, before making a significant life change, I decided to hike through the Grand Canyon, and then later travel to the Mojave Desert to make art. A series of works emerged out of living a contemplative practice on the trail. The dichotomy of impermanence and permanence is investigated via a small collection of handmade weavings, naturally dyed cloth, and a few photographs.
