Texas born and raised, artist Ruth Hooper bases the lively works of LA DANZA MACABRA on the art of los Dias de los Muertos and on the European tradition of la Danse Macabre. Her paintings and papercuts dramatize the reality of death as a part of life that we must embrace if we are to live with our whole hearts. Each piece centers on a dance, modern or traditional.

The MAGIC CATS, inspired by the work of Haitian artists, both women and men, celebrate the magic of the natural world. Some of these pieces are in gouache (opaque watercolor), some in beads, sequins, and other mixed media.
