My work aims to show the beauty and depth of our selves, as well as that of animals and nature. As the consequences of our choices become more clear in this incredible yet finite life, I hope to use my art to honor the unique beings with whom we share this universal human experience and pay homage to the extraordinary creatures of the earth. My works are my prayers that seek to remind us of what is most precious and that we are in this together (nos sumus in hoc unum). – Carolyn Robles
