The power of magic is all around us and inside us. When we perceive “how exquisite is the beauty of an ordinary day,” we are inside the magic. My shadow box piece holds the magic of childhood, my embroidered Mexican Jacket,  flowers, butterflies, fruit, dolls, color and texture and images of a party, a festival, a celebration that I carry with me, even through difficult times. Did they ever exist really? I think they have always been part of me and the magic of my imagination.
