About Sabrina J Squires

Living things were created spiritually before physically.

All cultures have creation stories that describe the culmination of earth and man--when disharmony enters that relationship, the earth and its inhabitants grow sick and suffer. Never before has there been such an opportunity to divorce the spirit of man and nature, and this denial results in the withering of the collective living soul. When this disconnection occurs, the man-made’s dehumanizing concrete jungle becomes self-destructive in its attempts to devour the divinely made’s organic harmony. In opposition to the force that seeks this degradation, my work is a continuous effort to keep that first primitive connection. The natural world is a challenging mentor who constantly inspires me to spend hours observing its details and reinterpreting them through my own creative ability. The product is a manifestation of that connection--a way I can show reverence and gratitude for this living place I call home.
