In My Dreams and in In My Heart is a completely upcycled piece. I used a photo frame that no longer had a glass and right on that background I started to create my work. The woman's face was made from typing paper that was cut out in the form of that woman and painted. The flowers on her head is made out of paint swatches cut in the form of a flower, as are the other parts of piece including the heart and the man's figure. At the bottom I used the XOXO from a broken photo frame. This artwork was chosen for an online exhibit at Touchtalent my online artist portfolio. From beginning to end this piece is made out of found discarded items.

About The Author
I began my work as an artist recently. Most of my life I worked as a Clinical Social Worker in New York City. I have worked with all kinds of populations. I’m Cuban born and came to this country at age 9. A few years ago with the shift in the economic situation I suddenly started exploring using all kinds of materials to create items such as paper dolls. Approximately two years ago I started doing more and last year I started my artist website with the name Maya Rodriguez. My artist website is at http://www.touchtalent.com/... more
