This body of work began as an exercise in exploring the relationship between weather and the human being. It evolved into a struggle to reconcile the opposing forces which are inherent in being human: good and evil, love and hate, birth and death, anima and animus. The moment we achieve a balance of these opposing forces, we experience the dynamic relationship of opposites and become aware of the beauty of being human, a being with a soul. This state is fleeting ... the struggle continues. These images are not a completed opus; they represent a work in progress.
