Since my two kids, now teens (Yikes!) have grown up around art of all kinds, it is totally natural for them to jump in and create on their own. Here are a couple of pieces that each made recently.
The heart is my daughter, Ivy. She collects the shells and arranges them on old paddock board fencing. I just want to add that she even hand saws the board!
The fish is one in a on going series made by my son, Bergen. He also uses the paddock fencing and a jigsaw; we have a few horse boarders that decided to chew the fence to bits so these are the pieces they could salvage, he incorporated some of the chewed part on the fin. With added rusty metal bits and all sorts of found objects the fish take on a personality.
They both have their creations in Sea & Green, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ and have been selling out regularly. These two are sold. Very proud of them!
