The Journey

Turtles are one of the oldest surviving life forms on our planet, turtle fossils uncovered dating from more than 200 million years ago. The turtle is a symbol of longevity, endurance, persistence, and the continuation of life, a steadfast unhurried journey of the spirit through time and space against incredible odds. There are 2 types of turtle found in Manitoba - the snapping and the painted... My Zenworks express my love of pen and ink and a desire to meld symbolism with abstract imagery created through spontaneous strokes and repetitive patterns. Zenworks emerge via a tranquil, meditative process that frees me to explore and experiment with line, shape and colour.
