I am loving the mini series, the mini hand in the human hand feels so kind.

The combination of map and the heart has a lot of personal meaning, a combo I use in my own artwork. Loving the anatomy series:

I really like the “Bird Subscription – 4 Original Map Collages” – they are just beautiful!
Thanks for a great giveaway!

Gorgeous work, I am stunned. I love the commission pieces, thinking about getting one done for Valentine’s Day. I’m also crazy about the framed dreamer map collage. The giveaway heart item is wonderful, I hope I win!

I like her print “Passage”. Very pretty.

JulieSuzanne | February 1st, 2010 at 11:24 pm

I love this Star Map and the Warm Heart prints.

Meghan | February 1st, 2010 at 11:59 pm

It’s hard to pic a favourite from such an amazing array of artworks but I really admire the custom piece Two Hearts. Perhaps it’s because of all the weddings I’ve been going to lately. It’s such an artful way to express the connection between two people, romantic or otherwise.

Jean | February 2nd, 2010 at 12:48 am

There’s so many to like. Aside from the Warm Heart, I love the Original Map Collages and Passage.

this is BEAUTIFUL and so different. i really love this piece and the Two Hearts piece in her shop. the simplicity of just 2 images on the page and yet the intricacy of the maps and threads encompasses the paradox of life and love. i love it.

kristen k. | February 4th, 2010 at 11:44 am

i was just admiring this artwork last week. love them all, but particularly the ones using hearts and maps. <3

em | February 5th, 2010 at 4:55 pm
