"Love Letters" uses artist imaged cards to convey the various stages of a relationship from courtship to demise. The torn envelopes with reinserted card create a geometric heart.
Individuals use the images by the artist to convey their own sentiments and messages. The museum gift shop allows all to express themselves as once only the artist could. The series is also my homage to the various artists who have given me so much.
