"A Deeper Love: Artful Hearts for Valentine's Day"

My "Heart of Wisdom Mandala" has been featured in a special Valentine's Day column by Huffington Post writer (not to mention artist, activist and Cosmic Sister) Zoe Helene!  The article and slideshow can be found at the link below:

It is a wonderful collection of truly beautiful and expressive arts and crafts exploring the form and symbolism of the heart shape. I can certainly appreciate Ms. Helene's suggestion to seek out Valentine's Day gifts that are unique, meaningful and that benefit artisans, and I'm honored to be included among such fine company.

It also includes an interesting short piece about the now-extinct Silphium plant, who's seeds are said to be an early inspiration for the heart symbol.

My "Heart of Wisdom Mandala" is available as a digital print, starting at around $24 here:

There are also a couple of unique limited edition hand made prints of this design available for $100 here:
