We love supporting women owned enterprises, so we are so proud to share her work with you. We have invited Reina many times as a featured artist at our museum shows in California and Arizona. The museum patrons are always excited to see her in action, as painting is what she loves to do most, and it always shows! What a stunning owl wood carving! There is such beauty and texture in this piece, with the ridges individually carved into the wings. Such a beautiful tactile feel to this piece.
