I draw and paint hands that are experiencing struggle and longing for hope.
Hands are symbolic to me. They are expressive - they reveal so much.
We "lend a hand" to help others in need.
We shake hands to seal a special bond, an oath, or a promise.
Hands can beg or refuse.
Take or give.
Show content or anxiety.
Be open to opportunity or clenched in fear.
Hands are our tools. A universal language.
The silent communication between intention and action.
We are all carrying so much that others can’t see.
To be messy is to be human. To be human is to be complicated.
Reaching for the unknown is scary and takes courage.
