The mood conjured up by a beautiful stained glass window depicting Mary Magdalene is where I drew my inspiration for this collection. Nestled between heavy timeworn furniture in a little antique store it stands out like a beacon. Not so much in a visual form but the emotions I feel while I stand there and take it in. So powerful that something so beautiful and fragile has the ability to resonate sadness. Within my images I want to create feelings of melancholy mixed with beauty as depicted in most artwork of the disciple and her repentance from past transgressions.
