Koelbel Library in Centennial, CO: 2023
Collaboration with Sandy Graves, bronze artist

Our dragonfly installation “Of Puddles And Ponds” is the result of a collaboration born out of a 17-year friendship with bronze artist Sandy Graves. The installation includes 18 dragonflies: 16 suspended, and two that are perched on the wall amongst paper koi fish sculptures. Dragonflies, creatures with such lightness and quickness of moment, have long inspired both of us; there is a sense of magic to them, and around the world they are viewed as symbols of transformation and self-realization. We felt it was very appropriate for them to take up residence in a library – a place of knowledge and exploration from which can spring these very life-changing experiences.
