Luminary Lanterns Light the April “Fool Moon.”
Last night the downtown streets were full of young and old parading with their handmade puppet luminary lanterns. The sidewalk crowd was so dense in places you had move as a cooperative unit, while live music pulsed in the street. This was all part of an event called FoolMoon FestiFools. What a great way to celebrate the transition to longer days and shorter nights, a celebration of light.
I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water.
Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist.
My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
Wauw. Beautiful lights!
Thanks for sharing!
