Miri Hunter, Ph.D, a musician, writer, performing artist and scholar, defines herself as a Creative Professional. Hunter is the Founder of the non profit organization Project Sheba, whose mission is to use the arts to transform culture through storytelling in order to access individual wisdom. This, Hunter believes, creates a culture of critical thinking and healing for individuals and communities.
I, like many others, moved from Los Angeles to Joshua Tree. This move provided me with ample opportunity to explore creativity. I have been able to stop and reflect. The desert is alive. Its life force has helped me to connect with dormant feelings within myself: hurt, loss, sorrow as well as hope, joy and love. There are no words. Through the images represented here, I wish to arouse the viewer to the place where they are able to experience, in some way, a portion of the intangible mysticism that emanates when the human spirit touches and is touched by nature.
