The Blossoming Heart Series is inspired by sacred hearts found in Latin American folk art. The found materials that I use are chipped, worn and nailed in place. Sometimes our hearts have to go through a bit of wear in order to truly blossom.
I'm a mixed media artist living in the Southwestern United States. When I'm not in my studio I like to spend time outside observing the goings on of the bugs and birds and the passing clouds. The intricate balance between humans and the natural world is an ongoing theme in my artwork. I try to walk lightly on the earth.
