Our "symbolic alphabet" (the visuals that tell our personal story) can be richer than we give ourselves credit for. Inspiration is an inside job. - Anahata Joy Katkin
Woven into our hearts and minds we all have the innate sense of the every day gifts and occurrences that brighten and enrich our lives. With this botanical freehand piece artist and co-founder Anahata has enthralled us with the delicate brushstrokes, draping branches and tree of life embodiment. She deliberately decided this painting would be only an exploration of shapes and strokes with no references or planning or any kind. She describes it as a process similar to hand stitching requiring the perfect placement to lay in each little leaf.
