In the Pine Barens of Southern New Jersey, Ginger is busy finding chairs and other furniture that are unique and original to use as her canvases. She then spends weeks, stripping, sandblasting and sanding each piece. Then after a chair is ready for paint the fun beginsÖlooking at each chair to see what design comes to mind. Sometimes itís instant, other times the chair looks like one thing, but changes as the process begins. After the piece has been designed and painted a top quality urethane clear is laid on top to protect them. An embellishment of wire, raffia, hemp, ribbons etc. as well as hand made seat cushions are then added to give the work dimension.
Many of these works of art were painted and stored for years because they were too valuable to Ginger to sell. After spending weeks with each piece itís hard to part with it when itís done. However, to make room for more, some of her collection must be sold.
