There is a sculpture artist I have been admiring and am looking forward to seeing her exhibit in Boston at the Mass Moca in December. Here's a few words from their website which explains the many whys I heart her.

"Unlike many contemporary artists who focus on social or media-related issues, Petah Coyne imbues her work with a magical quality to evoke intensely personal associations. Her sculptures convey an inherent tension between vulnerability and aggression, innocence and seduction, beauty and decadence, and, ultimately, life and death. Coyne's work seems Victorian in its combination of an overloaded refinement with a distinctly decadent and morbid undercurrent. Her innovative use of materials includes dead fish, mud, sticks, black sand, old car parts, wax, satin ribbons, artificial flowers and birds, birdcages, and most recently, taxidermy animals, Madonna statues, and horsehair.

Very inspiring and has hit home lately with my new designs...

Sounds very like you! I'm freshly in lust with that necklace that's third down!
