The Hermitage

Rima Staines is an artist using paint, wood, word,
music, animation, puppetry & story to attempt to build a gate
through the hedge between the worlds.

This will be a scrapbook of ideas, visuals to inspire,
and snippets from my own journey.

The appearance of things change according to the emotions, and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves.

—Kahlil Gibran (via likethesun) (via oceanofmind) (via free-wilderness)

I know that my role as an artist is to provide an opening for voices and stories that go beyond my own small, private existence.
