collections - loving things

I heart things so much.  Collections of everything, from the common love of seashells to old aquarium decor to vintage dixie cups.  I was thinking about how making things allows me to having many moving temporary collections and how thankful I am for that.  I love seeing things in multiple.  Since I was an undergrad in Art school, I would make fifty pillows for an installation or 25 drawings that were stacked on top of each other.  My practice remains, it only differs in the outcome.  Multiples are beautiful, the stacked paper, the variations in the button design, the placement of the lines of earrings.  The collection allows us to see the differences in these wonderful things.  I love the variations the imperfections, I love things.
