Sometimes I like working with a neutral palette - and the idea of "wabi-sabi" that brings a tranquility to my artistic heart...Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese aesthetic, indeed the embracing of a "way of life" that embraces the beauty of the worn, the long cared for, re-used, re-cycled, re-membered things and celebrates the simplicity of such.

In this piece, vintage novel pages and old lace mix with mulberry paper scraps (a Japanese style paper). A collection of found objects is gathered, such as a momma bird might need in order to fashion the perfect home for her eggs. String, a branch, inspirational words, a beautiful feather take on new meaning when seen as the foundation of home and life.

The frame is included with this artwork. The dimensions quoted include the frame.

I have always been a collector of things. I remember gathering pretty pebbles in a baby food jar, chosen from a creek that ran through the farm I lived on as a girl. Mom poured water in the jar to help clean up those precious gems, and we placed it in the porch windowsill where we could admire the soft beauty of the stones...the jar remained there through that winter, the frigid temperatures causing the water in the jar froze, trapping tiny air bubbles amid the pebbles - the effect was beautiful. I've never outgrown the wonder of finding the surprise of beauty in the ordinary rhythms of life. For me, my art and my calling to help others are an extension of my passion for gathering together fragments and bits of beauty from around my world... And that is what I want to help you with. To discover the quiet beauty and remarkable peace that waits to be discovered in the ordinary, commonplace, collected moments that color the masterpiece that is your life! {In expressing ourselves creatively, we are inspired and inspire others!
