About the work

I remember as a little girl I received a bag full of Guatemalan Worry Dolls. According to the Mayan legend, when worrying keeps a person awake, he or she tells a worry to as many dolls as necessary. Then the worrier places the dolls under his or her pillow and the worry dolls take away their worries for the person. They are tiny, hand-crafted one-inch tall dolls clothed in traditional Mayan Costumes. I’ve always loved the ethnic and colorful tapestries and fabrics and this abstract watercolor was inspired by their beauty, nostalgic memories and when hung will hopefully take the worries away from those who possess it.
