The DNA genetic code of molecules is evidence of the shared ancestry of all living things. Look for the DNA helix in Manzanita Sky’s branch tips.
My intention is to share work that stirs the visceral will to face our many challenges, with hope & joy, in the beauty that is in us and all other life. Beauty that is under our feet and setting sail at our backs.

All living organisms store genetic information using the same molecules –Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) and/or Ribonucleic Acid (RNA). They are …In Everything.
This genetic code of molecules is evidence of the shared ancestry of all living things.
DNA forms a beautiful double helix that looks like a twisted ladder. Can you find the DNA helix in Path? Do you recognize tracks of animals & plants that share the same path & DNA? Worm? Rabbit? Mt Lion? Snake? Raccoon? Human? Bird? California Bay Laurel? Live Oak?
As a native of California, the clay state, I turn mud to stone, working with clay from the earth to defend the earth. I grew up surrounded by California hills of oaks, little family farms and creeks teaming with frogs. My family regularly camped and backpacked in Yosemite’s valley and high sierras.
Inspired by its no-waste complexity, nature is my source and my anchor, in wild places and at home in East Oakland. It can guide us, as artists and citizens, by its responses to our actions.
Wildlands ...by a thread
