Description

Dr. Leonard G. Trujillo, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, occupational therapy Professor and Chair Emeritus based in North Carolina, provided the cover art for the Spring 2019 issue of the Open Journal of Occupational Therapy (OJOT) (Figure 1). The piece, titled “Life’s Struggles” is a relief carving made from butternut wood. Dr. Trujillo enjoys carving lifelike images that depict previous travels and his love of nature. His carvings are sculpted from a solid plank of wood, yet they provide the illusion of a three-dimensional form. Dr. Trujillo’s body of work reflects a lifetime of learning and engagement in the art and process of wood carving as meaningful occupation.
