Blessings From The Universe

What I found fascinating in my travels to Oaxaca and Peru is how seamless the melding of indigenous beliefs and Catholic religion brought by the Spanish was. I found the Mexicans' and Peruvians' acceptance of paradoxes both puzzling and charming.

My newest work, titled "Blessings From The Universe", a box shrine using seemingly conflicting spiritual and religious symbology, was inspired by what I discovered in Mexico and Peru, so different from the absolutes to which we are accustomed.
