Print: Healing Herbs

Through my tai chi practice I became interested in Chinese medicinal herbs and acupuncture. These practices are linked through eastern philosophies based in energy that moves through the body – our essential chi. Chinese Medicine works to keep the pathways where chi travels open and vital.

Fascinated with the energetics of movement, I began working with medicinal herbs in photographic montages, scanning small pieces of herbs and digitally composing large scale images. After completing a series of single herb portraits, I learned that working with herbs in my art is powerful medicine. Being conscious of energetic properties introduced into a space by the herb prints, I created formulas composed of several herbs that contain balanced, healing intentions.
