My desire to create art comes from my search for the meaning of our existence. I use my artwork as a key to understand others and myself. The most precious thing in my life is the growth process. Art is my guide and mentor....

Interpreting Rituals: The Butterfly Effect at Locating the Sacred Festival

  “all things are linked 911”
  Embossed paper, Folded-papers   24”x36”   2011
An outline map represents our earth. In the beginning, Earth had no national borders. Folded-paper cranes are symbols of peace and hope.  I have made paper cranes in the world map and placed folded-paper cranes at the positions where the United States has dropped bombs. The United States is a country of immigrants. The families of American citizens are 
all over the world.
