In my current collection Intentional serendipity, I look at “scribbles” of hair hanging on a bathroom wall. This hair, considered unappealing and even repulsive, prompts me to look openly and question my inherent reaction, allowing a redefinition of my learned perception of beauty and transforming these scribbled shapes into art pieces. By presenting each piece in a physical frame I am giving it a home, inviting the viewer to ask some of my persisting questions – Is this art? Is this design? Is this jewelry? Where does this item belong?
