The deer leaps with heart a-flame, as birds and snake cheer her on. The birds are for me a symbol of freedom, the snake is a reference to the ancient sacred feminine as snakes shed their skin and were thought of as a sign of regeneration and rebirth.  As an artist, it is a fine line to follow the heart, and be a productive member of society. But so many people have helped with my journey and have kept my dreams alive. (Thank you all!)

Print Edition: Burning Heart

SKU: Print Edition Burning Heart

This piece is a "relief engraving.” It is in the block print or relief family of printmaking, which refers to two surfaces, one lower than the other, so that the highest surface prints. I hand carve each image with small but tough tools called burins, or gravers. The remaining surface is rolled with ink and pressed through the printing press. Each print taken from the plate is part of an edition, and numbered. My limited editions are always under 100 since they are inked and cranked by hand on my printing press.  Printed on 100% Cotton Rag Paper.
