TWIGS

When I walk our two border collies in a local state park, I am constantly seeing bodies in the twisted branches of trees and bushes. After finding a stack of tiny boxes in a flea market, I decided to create heads to go with the twigs I gathered.

In 2012, I used Behold An Angel as our Christmas card. In my stocking that same year I found a music box that plays, Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven. Taking The Stairway To Heaven was created shorty after using the music box as the brain behind the "puzzled" face.
