Bridges To Health

New work for Penn Gazette, for an article entitled 'Bridges to Health'. Thanks to the Penn-based program Puentes de Salud, low-cost healthcare and services are now available to uninsured Philadelphia immigrant populations, many of whom are Latino. It was this connection that I wanted to celebrate in the art by bringing in the graphic, folk-art feel of Latin American embroidery.

Retreat with Taproot...

 

This is one of my favourite new magazines to hit the shelves.  Taproot is a beautiful, thoughtful, quarterly publication that celebrates local living through writing, photography and the arts, both fine & domestic.

I have had the pleasure of working directly with it's editor, Amanda Blake Soule, who also shares her world as Soule Mama in her numerous books & blog. 

My illustration (below) appears in the current fall issue, aptly titled: Retreat, and accompanies a lovely piece of writing. The story captures the precious moments of connection between a father and daughter as they share through storytelling.
