Above & Below: Freebird – rose petals, synthetic hair, guitar-string ball ends, bone and rose beads, rings, beads sewn to a wax-covered box with embroidered ribbon.
Donna describes her work: “I consider my works meditations on the beauty of rituals developed over time to satisfy the fundamental human need to mark important passages in life. Cultural and religious mementos from both historic and contemporary references inspire the work. Materials are chosen for their symbolic significance.
