Vacation; What you carry with you and what you bring home.

Taking time to notice a beetle near the beach.

This beetle found me, landing on my finger. I immediately recognized it as a bug I had spent some summer months with when I was in my teens. My sister had a cottage on an inland lake in Michigan. Growing up in Detroit, sometimes our only relief from heat were the occasionally opened fire hydrants. I traded the simmering city asphalt, for cool dips in the lake. These exotic looking creatures covered my sister’s rose bushes. I appreciate those lazy summer days with the sun as my watch. A time when my accomplishments were measured in thoughts.

About Babs

I consider myself a narrative artist, fascinated by the uniqueness of our human experience. Sculpture has enabled me to capture endless stories. I’m particularly seduced by the tangible qualities of Clay. Process and product are equally irresistible to me.
