Bernadette Straub


I am a hand builder.

I enjoy making whimsical pieces that also have function.

Like so many artists, I draw inspiration from nature, plants, animals, insects, the human form, as well as other artist's works.

I  love puzzles, games, riddles and codes and those are generally present  in my work, sometimes hiding in plain sight. Conversing with a piece,  letting it influence my marks, embracing creativity is a most rewarding  adventures.

Perhaps I am a Dadaist at heart.
