"Mexican Marionette"


By Evelyn Zlomke, RN, MPH

Evelyn Zlomke, RN, MPH, is a Perinatal Clinical Nurse Educator at the Vallejo Medical Center in CA. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in textiles; she makes fabric; she knits; and she paints landscapes in oil. This photograph was taken in 2007. The marionette seems to be climbing into the faux panel of a cabinet door, when in fact nothing is as it appears.
