Taking Green to New Creative Heights...

Last Saturday was our regular monthly meeting of the Wine Country Rug Hookers which is always a lovely time of hooking and talking with friends. This month, Nada & I left a little early so we could stop by an Open Studio event at the Sebastopol studio of our fellow WCRH member, Nancy Winn.
Nancy takes the meaning of green and recycling to heart and creates the most whimsical and fantastic papier-mache creatures out of found and discarded paper and fiber. (And she's a wonderful rug hooker too!)

This is Milli Vanilli....

Nancy's card reads "Milli Vanilli's fur is made of paper and fibers including mohair, wool, alpaca and a recycled mop from the Legacy thrift store." Doesn't she warm your heart??

If you click on these images, you'll get a much better look at the detail and the kinds of materials Nancy's used in these creatures.

Nancy's an inspiring, positive role-model and her work delights!

You can see more of Nancy's art at galleries in Northern California and on her website:
