IWCA member Liz Roetzel is a multi-media artist presently living and working in South Bend. She has lived all over the country, doing many interesting jobs and making her art. Liz selected works from her Snake Bowl series to show here.
“I began painting them after I received a “visitation” from a snake in my apartment in Chicago. I’m convinced it was from my dear brother who had died a few weeks earlier, telling me to face my fears. Simultaneously it was about rebirth (his then, and mine in various subsequent life changes.) Over time I also came to recognize it as a symbol of healing, flexibility, and resisting temptation. “
