The Moon is a reoccurring figure in my work and for good reason. It has long been an important part of our mythology. Long ago the Moon was born from a star being father and a human mother who dared to venture into the sky world with her sister. The women came back longing for their families where the moon was raised as a child among the people known as dakwibalth (Changer/ Transformer). There are many stories that put him as a central figure forever changing the world in his time. I am often taken by our mythology when I admire the moon rising in the twilight as night falls. This is the first print that merges my love for photography with my Coast Salish design tradition. The background is from my photograph directly along with the faint variation in the deep blue sky as the colors were still intense.
