WE emerge from an ancient root system of collaboration. WE grow strong with communal care and nurturing support. Embrace the single heartbeat of a diverse population and recognize your face. Know that WE are all one beautiful creation, spreading our branches out into the world...
Through my Guardian figurative art, I strive to share the bond that exists between all souls, acknowledging that the essence of who we are extends well beyond our physical presence. Each Guardian is an encounter with the heart of an individual who has crossed my life path.
