For two decades Rini Templeton made “drawings of activists in the United States, Mexico and Central America while she joined them in their meetings, demonstrations, picket lines and other actions for social justice.” Rini has been a huge inspiration to me for both the beauty of her aesthetics and style and for her unwavering commitment to social movements. This year I have committed more of my time to experimenting with my drawing and printmaking style and as part of that effort I will be creating works inspired by some of my favorite artists.

“Heart to Heart” pays hommage to Rini and the power of physical human touch.
