My Sacred House: Art Shrine Auction for Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots

My good friend Rebecca of Recuerda Mi Corazon has been hosting an annual fundraiser for her charity, The Oaxaca Street Children Grassroots.  This will be the 3rd year I have participated and I believe it is a wonderful and beautiful cause.

My submission is titled "My Sacred House"

Close up


This is a mixed media assemblage on a 5 by 7 Canvas board. Features handmade fabrics, found objects, worry dolls from Guatamala,  millefiori mosaic tiles from Italy, milagros from Mexico, vintage ephemera  image transfor techniques, handmade beads and whatever else I came across in my journeys.
I titled this My Sacred House, because I was inspired to create a place that welcomes all faiths.  A place where someone always felt safe and welcomed and a place that would inspire meditation and higher learning.  Most of all, a place to love.
To view this piece and a whole lot of other eye candy, read below for all the glorious details!

I LOVE your shrine--all of the colors and textures coming together beautifully. I've always been drawn to shrines, even made them as a little kid before I really understood what they were. So much joy here. :)
