They believe this to be a therapeutic process to let go of fears and embrace instead tools of empowerment. The earth represents our physical body, thus by doing art we release what no longer serves us, as we do in the exhale, and we embrace what helps us move forward in our evolutionary path, as we do in our inhale. In this way, we carry all our relations in a more peaceful and loving way with the environment and the people that surrounds us.

A little more on Lawrence:
His ancestors were Cherokee, Scotch, Irish and English and he comes from a long line of saddle makers and leather workers. He appreciates the indigenous way of seeing, feeling and living on Mother Earth, and these influences can be seen in his work. He finds that people are hungry for a connection to nature and freedom, and are drawn to his art as much for a touch of this powerfully creative life force as for the beauty of each piece.
