Working in circles

Working in circles is how Utah’s MaryAnne Loveless describes the polymer collages she assembles on boxes and books and jewelry.

I’d already spotted her work because of its range of pleasing patterns and palettes. A note from MaryAnne’s son made me bring her to you today.

“My mother is an amazing polymer artist, all familial bias aside,” said Joe. He thought that recognition on PCD would surprise her and make her proud. A son’s thoughtfulness makes for a heartwarming Monday story.

Sometimes good things happen even when you feel like you’re working in circles.

                      What a thrill! Thank you, Cynthia, for this great forum, and thanks to all those who make comments. I love my job. I love to spend time in my studio, but it can get a little lonesome. So it’s wonderful to hear encouraging words from others who reach out. Made my day.

                        Oh, and I almost forgot. My son Joe is something else. I don’t know anyone who cares more about other people and how they feel than he does. Warms my heart.

                          Mary Anne your son sounds like a very thoughtful, caring young man. You taught him well. Your work is beautiful.
