Transitions: Finding Joy
Jennifer Cocoma Hustis and Espanta Steppe

A horse can teach you about yourself, life, and how to remain connected in the world and artwork can reflect that universal understanding.

It is said that hummingbirds float free of time, carry our hopes for love, joy and celebration. The hummingbird's delicate grace reminds one that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, and every personal connection has significance.

The artworks in this exhibit where inspired in response to life's many transitions, and the majority of these works were created in the past two weeks since my father transitioned from life through death.
