Ström is Scandinavian for river. Diptychs are particularly intriguing to me because the two panels can be hung together as one large painting or separated with a little space between them much like chapters in a book. All of my work is an exploration of meditation, movement, the passage of time, slowing down, and experiencing a calm and abiding beauty in the world.
