An 8x10 archival print with accompanying affirmation card with the following on it:
Unite your knowledge with action even when it feels too public or exposed.

Unite your unique skills and competency with opportunities to LEAD, to help others, and to fight for what truly matters.

As a child I was fascinated with dance and how body lines can create meaning. Now as a writer and calligraphy artist, I have come to appreciate how the simplest line or a single, powerful word can nearly tell a whole story.
"Enneahands" uses imperfect, organic shapes and continuous line to tell the beautifully flawed but neverending story of our human struggles. In the final print, all the hands in their uniqueness come together to create balance and synergy as a stronger complete circle.
