The Inspiration Behind "Bugle Beads"

I had a remarkably creative mother. Our home was filled with tons of craft and art supplies to play with and dig through. My new painting, “Bugle Beads”, reminds me of going on a little journey through Mom’s bead collection. Daydreaming about what all these glittery and magical elements can become. Sifting through boxes of shimmering beads or watching the light dance along the surface of a dress she’d adorned with them.

I’ve captured that magic here on this painting. Enjoy!
