I am a mother, artist and teacher who is always making things. My messy hands enjoy the process based, tactile nature of art making. I work quickly with recyclable materials and paper mache to create whimsical and playful sculptures, which I adorn with various accessories such as my sons’ old clothing, felt, pom poms and glitter. The colorful, naive and childlike nature of my work references a desire to belong and find joy in an often difficult world.
Big Foxie is the name of a stuffed animal my oldest son loves. He is Big Foxie. These thirty pieces follow the story of Big Foxie and Big Little Foxie taking a walk on a beautiful summer morning. Along the walk they stumbled on a beehive and were met with the consequences.
