To Hold the Sky Studios is meant to be a representation of the human spirit which pulls us and calls us to reach out beyond our grasp. . . to hold that which is not obtainable. Society strives with expressions of “The Sky is the Limit” meaning that all possibilities and capabilities are endless in an infinite and ever changing world. We know that the ends of the Heaven’s will never be in sight, it is like chasing a rainbow in the sky which you cannot touch. However, through a crystal you can light that prism of color directly onto your own skin. Instantly, what you thought you could not touch actually touches you! It is my goal to be a messenger of that light and color which touches you.. My poetry, photography, charcoal sketches, oil and mixed media artworks all have a similar vein running through them. My work focuses on life, death, prayer, gentility, fragility, distance, time, space, echos, angels, spirtuality and the elements of the natural world such as earth, wind, water and fire. The nature of man in relationship to our environments of rain, rivers, oceans, meadows and mountains is often featured in my work. The clouds, stars, trees, leaves, flowers, the continual shifting of the sun’s light and the magnificent encompassment of the sky is what interests me. All these things speak to me and I listen. I want to portray emotions of tenderness, love, fear, hope, sorrow, betrayal and loss. The titles of my poems and the titles of my photographs are often very similar. It is my goal to express these subjects through the art of words and imagery. Rudolf Steiner wrote, “The power of speech is the starry script of the cosmos come to life.” I want to “write down the stars in my poetry and “To Hold the Sky” in a picture. I desire to communicate my thoughts through the timeless visions of photographs , the permeating effect of lyrics, and the life that ensues in the feeling which a painting can convey.
