Heartbeat Series

The series "Heartbeat" sprang from my interest in the shape of the actual heart as opposed to the "heart shape" we are all so familiar with. There are so many wonderful and varied ethnic representations of the heart to consider. (I love the stylized hearts in Hispanic art.)

These prints are the result of whimsical experimentation with shape and color. They are also, of course, a wish for more caring, and a less antagonistic, less violent world.
