mixed media (chair)

This benefit supported both
the Woman's Club and the
Pacific Art League, two local
organizations historically
dedicated to the betterment
of the community and the
beauty of Palo Alto.

This piece illustrates the
concept of the chair as a
place to let creativity sprout
and grow.  I incorporated the
brass shade of a reading
lamp (also from the 1930's)
and vines embellished with
Swarovski crystal.
A 1930's folding chair
provided by The Woman's
Club of Palo Alto was
transformed for their March
2014 benefit:
