Angels and spiritual ephemera are very dear to me and usually inspire my creative journey.
I love the Relics & Artifacts® Coquille set and find that the oyster shell is a beautiful substrate to work in miniature.
My inspiration started with a inkjet printed copy of this beautiful image of the Madonna and two angels. My design style is spontaneous while using many layered mediums, materials and techniques while striving to replicate in an "old world" and "time worn" fashion.
"We are each of us angels with one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another." ~Luciano de Crescenzo
