Don't you just Aloe? So healing and yet offers a bit of aggression when you go to cut it. All those spines!
The simple act of drawing is a meditation. These drawings are done in a technique called stippling. The tiny minute dots of ink are placed together on the page to create an image. It’s a long process and it requires slow constant repetitive mark-making. I am using it as a meditative prayer. Just as the Tibetan monks who create the beautiful sand mandalas and chant as they go, I can send out prayers of peace into the universe as I make dots. Whether it manifests anywhere or not is not my concern, it manifests its effects in me which then transmits to those I come in contact with.
I then create digital prints of these images and mat them in 11"x14" mats. They are signed and dated 2018, I also stamp them with a custom made peace sign stamp created just for these prints.
If you choose to purchase one of these prints, it is a manifestation of peace as some of the profit goes to a local art organization to further create programs that teach people a peaceful way to express themselves. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Custom and personalized orders
Custom orders will take more processing time. Asking for a print in an odd size may only take an extra day or so. A commissioned painting from your photo may take several weeks.
Custom orders may only be returned if they can be sold to someone else.
Sales of commissioned paintings are final but you will see photos of the finished product ahead of time and will be sold to you with your approval.
Most prints can be made in custom sizes to fit your space. Please allow extra time for this and measure carefully. Cropping an image to fit a certain size can be tricky and I will send you a proof before printing to make sure it is exactly what you want.
Gift wrapping and packaging
I do not offer gift wrapping , however I can include a card with your message if you are sending a gift.
All our orders are well protected and packed to arrive safely. Unframed Originals and Prints are shipped flat in a clear plastic sleeve, backed by cardboard. They are sandwiched between heavy cardboard that is larger than the print. Shipping costs include the cost of packing materials, not just postage.
Cards are packaged in acrylic sleeves or boxes and packed in bubblewrap or other packing material.
I use your photographs to create a one of a kind drawing or painting based on your specifications. I send you a rough first draft pdf to make sure I am capturing your wishes. On completion, I will send you a pdf of the final art for your approval before the art is shipped.
