Joy is in our DNA is an original phrase and artwork - mixed media on wood


  • Details
    Joy is in our DNA came to me one day while I was developing this series and it has made me happy ever since!

    First, I took a photo of a typewriter (one of the many in out collection). I use Photoshop as my digital darkroom. And created the rubber stamp look. I extracted the keys of the photo to create a whole alphabet. And then designed the structure of 4 rows of 3 letter statements. Most are distilled mediations - either fitting exact or omitting a letter to fit.
    From my favorite paper house in LA, I selected the handmade paper, with deckle edge on all sides, from Nepal. It feels so earthy yet spiritual. Had to create a feeder sheet to get through my large format Epson printer. And did! So it is printed with archival inks.
    To enrich it even deeper, I handprinted and collaged snowflake and zebra stripe - two unique elements in nature. It is on a nee natural wood frame and front.

    So this one is loved by families and all good humans!
