Fantastic Carousel of Dreams

Jennifer Rutherford's avatar Jennifer Rutherford

Our inspiration for our artwork is pure and simple. We are inspired by our passion for what we do, the materials we use and each other. We have been living, breathing and creating art together for 12 years. We critique each other as well as encourage and inspire. What gives us our passion to continue is the reaction we receive from those who see our art. The most common reaction being that our artwork makes them smile. For us, there is no higher compliment than that! We chose to create our piece because we both feel that a carousel evokes fond memories. The spinning carousel, animals bobbing up and down, dancing to the calliope music. Children laughing, their imaginations soaring, as they ride the magic ponies to the moon. The smell of hot buttered popcorn and cotton candy on a warm summer night as we drift off to the land of sweet memories, of simpler and happier times, of family, friends and first loves
