About the
Body of Work

Viriditas means “greening power,” a word and concept created by Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century artist, mystic, poet and prophet. Viriditas embodies the notion that nature, creativity and spirit are green, interconnected and divine. It can also be understood as the rejuvenating energy that humans receive in their physical and spiritual life force.

“There is no creation that does not have a radiance. Be it greenness or seed, blossom or beauty, it could not be creation without it… the work is living, being, spirit, all verdant greening, all creativity.”
Hildegard of Bingen
