Darby draws inspiration from the expanse of the universe to the fragile creatures around her rural home to create elegant compositions that carry a message of hope, of relationship, of life.
“Genesis is the beginning. There are moments when we have vision, hope, dreams higher than we believe possible. And yet, what are the possibilities? What does our hope for the future spring from? A new beginning, beginning to grow, the dawn of newness, fresh, uncluttered, uninhibited. Rest in the Presence, the hope of a future is yours. Genesis is the future.” –Darby
