Art Context – The following miniature arts and crafts are a continuation of my quarantine creations series. The Palms depicted here have significant personal attachments associated my children during their younger years. The palms have been created with acrylics, water colour on paper and embellished with glitter.

Inspiration – The style once again is inspired by the Votive. The use of metallics and the small size of this piece are inspired by Frida Kahlo’s Mexican Votive style. Her small sized panels were usually created as a form of devotion.

Sensory Perception – The crafts allow for the fulfilment of the human sense of touch. As we are touching, we are sensing, our sensory perceptions of touch are being fulfilled.



Whilst there are many parenting memories attached to these creations, I would also like to dedicate these as a source of hope, love, inspiration for the re-opening of the Galveston Island and city, which is located on the Gulf Coast of Texas. And also the restaurants owned under the LANDRY’S, Inc umbrella. Whilst there are precautions and practices still in-place due to the COVID-19, this step will encourage employees and the general public to feel a sense of normal, as transitionary phases will allow for smooth returns as the Coronavirus pandemic reduces to the phase of increased recovery. Thank you!
