In Search of Ground attempts to keep one’s feet planted when everything in the world feels topsy-turvy. I’ve often felt like a kite that never seemed to make its way down; beaten, tattered, faded, stitched and patched. My strings often tugged, but never quite able to safely land at a peaceful home. Sorting through the emotions of the intense and sudden shifts in stability has been an exhausting exercise. The cathartic practice of creating has given me solace through pain, strength through grief, and peace through turmoil.
