St Agatha Magnet
This magnet of St. Agatha was created by classically trained painter, Barbara Barratt. As a long time resident of Santa Fe, New Mexico Barbara has embraced the strong local aesthetic, often reinterpreting images in her own unique folk art style. Her colorful style is the result of years working in the arts as an illustrator, poster artist, and greeting card designer. This magnet of St. Agatha makes a great gift to a nurse you know or someone on the path to becoming a nurse.
"As a child in Catholic school, I collected and traded Patron Saint holy cards, much as other kids collected baseball cards. I delighted in the art and the idea I could appeal to a special saint for help with a specific need. I often use the sanctioned modern patronage as opposed to the traditional one to make it more relevant." - Barbara Barratt
