A Connection

The moment before me is fleeting. Nature has given me grace, given me a glimpse into her world. The light changes, the mountains stand firm, yet are moving. The harsh weather and the hard landscapes. The soft brilliance of spring. The multifaceted grains give us a glimpse into our complexity, and our simple beauty.

Growing up in the Northwest, my identity is connected with the rivers, mountains, and the people who call her home. I love how the sunlight dances off the clouds, how the clouds play off the sky, how the mountains say hello, and watch over those who drink from their waters. This is the place that the sea and the mountains border a haven of fields and forests.

Art is all around us, connecting us to the sublime, to our inner reaches. Working together art transforms, becomes community, a voice: for this land, for the future, and for our inner child. We are more, we are magical. Silver Grain Art is a celebration of the elements that can inspire and bring us together.
