MUSINGS...

 

 

Sometimes, rather than canvas and paint, other ways to express thoughts and emotions need to be explored. Both meditative and reflective, always in response to the human condition.

 

This heart series was born of a desire to express the emotions contained within
the heart. Made of thousands of hearts punched from recycled shopping bags. Glued, strung, folded, scrunched organized into stories meant to convey emotion, meaning and hope for all who struggle.
