Muse on a Rhubarb Leaf

15 Jan

My current show at Squamish NSCU has an assortment of my whimsical pieces on display including “Muse on a Rhubarb Leaf”. Created in 2007 this piece was showcased on HGTV’s, “That’s Clever” in 2008/09.

The figure is made from a wire framework with an assortment of materials and embellishments stitched onto the armature. The leaf is a plaster cast of a rhubarb leaf that I then papier mâchèd with kozo papers. Having grown up in the Maritimes with an over abundance of stories about fairies, elves, mermaids and other “wee folk” it’s no wonder that I’m drawn to create my own tales from time to time.
