Lovelace on

Utah’s MaryAnne Loveless found an old wire egg basket at the second hand store that was perfect for holding her selection of polymer insects. She admits that the display could be confused for a buggy hat.

MaryAnne’s colorful creepy crawlies are particularly alluring at this time of year. What a great use for tail ends of canes!

See all the caned and textured pieces that she’s been putting together.

    Love Maryanne’s work! She always has a quirky twist in there somewhere. Having just seen the very quirky exhibit ‘Lifelike” at the nearby Art Museum, I am tempted to go large myself.

      Thank you, Cynthia, and thank you, Randee. This is a funny world we live in now, to have cyber-mentors whom I’ve never met, but somehow feel their support. Your warm and friendly comments do so much good for so many people. Here’s a little bit of that right back at you!

          Just love her work, any idea where you purchase?

            Thank you, Sue. What a great question! I’m looking for an easy way to monetize my website. Any ideas?

            These bugs are so bright and colorful. Very beautiful.

            These are really great. My favourite polymer clay bug artist is Wanda Shum from Vancouver Island BC. Her dragon flies are amazing.

              I have LOVED MaryAnne’s work for years and years. She is SOOOOO amazingly creative!

                Thank you, Deborah. Wanda’s bugs are amazing! I’m always torn between adding more detail and having a huge swarm for my art shows. Sometimes, the commercial side wins, sometimes, the artist.

                  Mary Anne the buggy basket is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!!!! I can’t believe how talented you are. In fact all the California cousins are. You or one of your friend’s comments mentioned wearing it as a hat. I couldn’t do it. My head would itch like crazy, thinking about the hat (even tho it’s beautiful) I was wearing. I love all of y’all.
