Ceilon has lived in Montana since 1990 and both her spirit and art have been greatly influenced by the landscape here. Most of her work is relatively Jungian in nature. She usually starts with between one and three original images, selecting ones that strike her at the moment, montaging them together, causing the completed image to invoke a feeling of yearning or longing for forgotten or favorite places, or for as-yet unfound places. If she is true to her intuition when choosing images and completing the piece, when it is completed it tells her a story about herself, from somewhere in her unconscious mind. Ceilon considers her work particularly successful when the viewer has a similar experience of the image, even though the 'story' may be different for each viewer.
