Kawana Edwards – Art With a Past

Santa Fe artist Kawana L. Edwards search for second hand materials, objects that have a past, and a connection to nature is what makes her mixed media assemblage shadowbox dioramas come to life. Whether she is hiking the vast landscapes of Northern New Mexico, or walking on the historic Santa Fe plaza, she looks for beauty and a way to give meaning to what has been left behind. Her awareness of the fragile balance of life, her obsession for preserving the natural world and a sense of humor is evident in her one-of-kind work.
