"The wisdom of the passages Lelania chooses are profound;
the deep heart-felt quality she infuses into each piece is
palpable, and the beauty with which she practices her
gift is inspiring"
Dennis Kiley, Mount Desert, Maine
"Her words and tender touch of pen to paper are exquisite and help us connect with the Divine."
E. Hurley, Bar Harbor, Maine
In the calligraphic arts, there are technically-gifted practitioners who create gallery tags, invitations and
such, and it's lovely stuff. Lelania Avila bursts on the scene from a whole other constellation of giftedness.
Lelania creates magic, magical storytelling through line, color, poetry, and flashes of insight.
She's a miniature titan of creativity, a puppeteer, home-school Mom, costume-designer, gardener and
improv-impresaria. She has fire and dash and a great heart, a gift of whimsy.
Mary-Anne De Lany, aka Wayfaring Traveler, New Mexico
