As a totem, Barn Owl shares clairvoyant and clairaudio abilities. This speaks to seeing past illusion and to locating that which we need through deep listening, drawing resources from what may seem like nothing. Barn Owl is able to create a “neural map” of auditory space. Barn Owl helps pinpoint what is needed, and grant a picture of the unknown with more detail and accuracy than any other animal.
Barn Owl is a shapeshifter, silent, rarely seen. She is associated with the moon, and the crone, and with abundant creativity and production. Seeing Barn Owl during the day indicates a message about fear of the unknown and the courage to navigate it. As a monogamous bird and an abundant hunter, Barn Owl symbolizes steady commitment to what we are creating in the world. She is an ally in times when our relationship to productivity is called into question. Barn Owl reminds us not to focus on creativity as a means of being seen but rather as a means of listening.

I was raised in an old farmhouse in Maine, surrounded by plants, tools, animals, community, tumbling rock walls and a decaying barn full of decades of friends’ forgotten belongings. Those aesthetics translate well to the decay and growth of New Orleans; my work is at home here in the Deep South.
I run my restoration and design business, ‘Paraph,’ from my home studio in Uptown New Orleans. My business is dedicated to the rejuvenation of the stained glass trade by using traditional techniques inventively. I am passionate about plant medicine, cooking, gardening, story telling and social justice. A career in art allows me to live joyfully. Pleasure, brought through inspiration and intellectual challenge, is a priority for me. I strive to share that pleasure with others through my sculpture.
My work is often either narrative or serves as a way to research new subjects. Through treatment of metal, wood, glass, clay and found objects, I explore the aesthetics of decay, vulnerability, and material and textural variation. In all of my work, I strive to blend patience with spontaneous decisions.
