Featured Artist for May: SHELLEY MATOUSEK
My passion for basketry developed from a love of using natural, organic and California native materials then combining them with other materials to create works of art. Nature provides everything we need if we just open our eyes and minds to the creative process. Many of my works of art are embellished with additional elements. Each piece takes on a life of its own. Its own adventure. I am just along for the ride, the love and the passion. Enjoy!”
