About the piece: I always thought coffee was my go-to afternoon pick me up. For Mother's Little Helper, I thought about what I really rely on to get me through my hectic day. I always reach for a sweet treat with or without the coffee. Ahhh, sweet!
About the frames: I began making frames for my paintings in the early 90's. I experimented with small toys, bottle caps, scraps of wood, faux gems, buttons, figurines and other cast offs; attaching the objects to a simple wood frame. Gold paint transforms the recognizable objects into something surreal. The frames have an energy that comes from the transference of special meaning onto things from our memories of childhood, travels and dreams.
