Here is the quote to go with this work:

“The Soul is tied to no individual, no culture,

no tradition, but rises fresh in every person,

beyond every person,

and grounds itself in a truth and glory that

bows to nothing

in the world of time and place and history.

We all must be,

and can only be,

“A light unto ourselves.”

~ Emerson


The Dream State Series started out of my need to understand my inner voice. I can hear it, beating a steady back-beat in my mind. I can feel it in my feet when I am dancing, creating; I am breathing fire.
I closed my eyes and grabbed a handful of plaster, and this is what happened. First I sculpted her face on top of the canvas and let that dry for a couple of days. While the plaster was still wet I embedded vintage lace into it in the background. Then I used more found objects, feathers, costume jewelry, and oil paints. Surrounding her face is 2.5 inches of thick black feathers, they stand out from the canvas/background and move freely in the air currents, she is always moving. She is also wearing a ceremonial crown of sorts of pearl shaped, stainless steel beads and crystals. I glazed her face several times with layers of thin, transparent color so she glows in the light, her skin is lightly textured; deeply rich in color and tone. This work is a painting and a hanging wall sculpture, and it’s sure to be a conversation starter.
This painting placed in the top five in an International Mixed Media Event, in 2005.
Waking the Soul Power is the face that I have given to my inner voice.
I guess my inner voice is a dark skinned, tribal warrior woman.
That works for me.
What does the face of your inner voice look like?
