The navel (clinically known as the umbilicus, colloquially known as the belly button, or tummy button)
is a scar on the abdomen at the attachment site of the umbilical cord.
A quarter width above my belly button begins another scar which runs
like a railway track straight down to my groin marking my collision with reality.
This scar is the first line drawn in my body of work.
Each drawing begins by opening up this scar like a zipper,
abandoning my body like a womb would a foetus.
So that I may enter into my self as imagination.
Liberated of all the bodies burdens, I am free to wander in and out of infinities.
These drawings are a language.
As an Art Educator I believe what needs to be taught is the process of what makes ones experience sacred.
What is sacred, and what that means to human beings as a whole.
In doing so I believe it will lead one into the understanding that one's life is sacred,
which may in turn transfer to the environment, the earth.
