Mariza Ryce Aparicio-Tovar


Inspired by our natural environment, indigenous artist Mariza Ryce Aparicio-Tovar explores issues of mental health and self-love with hopes of advocating care for our planet and ourselves so that collectively we may experience our full potential.

About Mari’s art & practice…

I draw much of my strength and inspiration from our natural environment, as it has always been my comfort and guide. I strongly believe that our mental health is very much influenced by our connection or lack of connection with our ecosystem. The art of these cards attempts to bridge the gap and remind us of the power and love found there.

Having grown up with ceremony and daily rituals that connect us with the elements, songs that ancestors sang with words and sounds that speak to this connection, I am inspired to share the love, honor, and respect that our planet is due.  It is my hope that the love embedded in my work can serve as a reminder of this connection so that we may feel supported by our natural environment and also responsible for its well-being. Heal your self, heal the earth.
