Artist Statement

Sometimes we find ourselves staring at a foreboding staircase - arms loaded with baggage - wondering how will we get to the other end? A bit of advice from an old sage … first, lay down the bags you don’t need right now. You can retrieve them later, if you do. Second, free up a hand to grab the rail in an unsteady moment. And third - just GO! According to the author Aberjhani, the first step is always the hardest. But after that you will find your pace and before you know it, you make it to the other end. The main thing is, don’t just stand there and stare at those stairs that beckon you. Travel light and take that first step!
