So once again, I have the great honor of exhibiting my art with some incredible artists. This year I have been creating new pieces in a project I’ve been calling the Birch project.
I have been creating beaded pieces inspired by white birch bark and creating pieces folded from birch bark. I am trying to push the boundaries of what is considered art and exploring what can be done with birch bark. I will also have some traditional pieces made from birch bark.
I want my pieces to feel alive and I hope that I have accomplished that.
Here is a preview and details for the show:
Along with my full size pieces I will have micro pieces for sale as well, like the one above.
