My piece, "The Vision of an Angel", was created due to my fascination with angels. I have always wondered what they thought of and by setting praying hands in the middle of her face, i hoped to embrace her thoughts as the unity of ones struggles in strength of surrender. I was inspired by watching the strength of the young Haitian girl my family fostered as she got on her knees to pray; I thought surely that was the vision of an angel.
My print is titled, The Making Of A Walking, which is one of the mottos for the Anasazi Foundation. This print comes from a broken piece of anasazi (native american tribe) pottery, which is used as the logo for the Anasazi Foundation. i was inspired by the anasazi foundation and chose to make a print in honor of them.
