Artist: MaMa Buttercup
Inspiration: Pears have always melted me. Not the apple, but the pear. I love their odd shapes, the way they lie, and the hidden colors I can find in each beautiful piece of fruit.

Emily Dickinson writes…..

Artist: Mutha Nature (Herself)
Material: Live Oak Driftwood

Some of the most beautiful pieces of art I have in my home, come right from Mother Nature. I carried this piece of wood 3 miles from Boneyard Beach, Bulls Island, SC to the ferry boat taking us back to the mainland. I wanted to assimilate that memory into our home.

Buckets of shells live in our backyard. We use them for counting games and decoration. Odd dichotomy…snow with a conch shells.
