Fox Medicine by Artist Kim Santini

October 2022

Ms. Santini's connection with the natural world is evident in her work. "Fox relies on her wits, trusts her intellect, and enjoys a good joke. She is a risk taker. Fox sleeps under the stars and fiercely protects her territory. She appreciates community while also celebrating autonomy." This is a part of Kim's Spirit Animal Series.
