Kachina Essence

The is a collection of 7 Kachina's done using the Zentangle method on Fabriano Tupleo Paper with pen and ink. Each Kachina is 10.5" Square and will be framed, matted, and hung as one installation. The central theme of the Kachina is that they represent the presence of life in all objects that fill the Universe. Everything has an essence or life force and people must interact with these forces. Kachinas are connections between these life forces and humanity. Educating and connecting people to the ways of life. I have always felt connected to the Kachinas and I wanted to represent them in a new modern way by using the Zentangle method in order to allow others to be inspired by their beauty and meaning. I invite the viewer to connect to these modern versions of the ancient Kachina culture and feel their essence for themselves.
