Who is Becoming was inspired by Skuld, the youngest of the three Norn sisters.
More powerful than any god or human, she nurtures the future, even if it means
discarding her sisters’ knowledge of the past and present. The Norns have been
revered as seers since ancient times. In fairy tales they were The Three
Godmothers, Raphael painted them as the three Graces, and in Shakespeare, The
Three Fates. In my painting Skuld foretells the future while she waters the
sacred land as ferns unfold their spirals before her.
