- "Moments of change inform my work. The change could be something as subtle as the exchange of a glance, a fleeting shadow or a sudden realization....In creating compositions that reflect moments of change, I frequently use birds as metaphor—for transitions, as models of adaptability, as harbingers of danger, as symbols of the spirit. -Marie Weaver
