My fascination lies in what connects us to one another and the importance of our shared humanity. We are unique in our DNA, fingerprints and irises, but have different social, cultural and personal experiences, set within the context of our time. My belief is that what we share collectively can outweigh difference.

I am interested in the physiology of the human body; our need for food, water and care, and our psychological need for meaning, or spirituality, in our lives. My particular interest is in the spiritual beliefs of Native Americans which stems from my part-Cherokee heritage.

I have found that there are consistent themes and imagery that occur across science, philosophy and psychology; in particular, the symbolic and archetypal motif of the circle and its meaning, in that it can communicate the importance of both the connection to ourselves, and to each other, and how relevant this is to the world we live in now.
