Having shared true, loving friendship with a dog, an Orlando-based artist, Meryl Rachlin, understands how much a pet can mean to its human. The loss of her best friend served as an excruciating inspirational spark, motivating the artist to discover a technique that would change her expression and the concept of her art. Creating pet tributes, Meryl moulds three-dimensional mementos of peoples’ precious little animal darlings, preserving memories of their spirit and the beauty of their devotion. Meryl Rachlin is the Gold Artist of the ArtAscent “Pets” call for artists. To see the full body of work and profile, get a copy of the ArtAscent Art & Literature Journal “Pets” issue.

I honestly believe ArtAscent is among the best of the quality arts and literary magazines available today.

Each time I read through an issue of ArtAscent, my mind opens up a bit more as to what art can be, what writing can be, and to how the two can enter into a dialogue together. To explore the different ways reader/writer and artist/viewer can converse with each other.
