Artist's Statement

 Like a Tibetan prayer flag, I create art to send my wishes for peace and happiness into the universe.  Over two decades of exploring Buddhism and traveling to the sacred temples, canyons and mountain-tops of the world, these phrases of loving kindness (may you be happy, live in peace, in safety, in health, and with ease) have resonated strongly. 

  My art explores both the prayer flag’s form and the spirituality of its messages.  Some of my flags reflect my expansive hopes for all people, others are very personal hopes for myself and those near me.  All are prayers from my heart.

  With gratitude, I thank Craig Rowley for his photographic skill and inspiration and website design.  All photographs on this site are his.  Also, my thanks to photographer Karen Howard, for permission to abstract her lovely lotus image.
