Beth Butterfield - The Queen of Recycling
In a world where recycling is a mantra these days, members and guests of VHAA were enchanted to watch the Queen of Recycling perform her magic at the April meeting. Beth Jewell Butterfield lived up to her middle name and entertained as well as informed her audience with both wit and expertise. Using everything she finds or lands on her doorstep, she demonstrated how bits of torn paper and some Mod Podge became portraits, like her recycled dog Bear, landscapes or objects in large or small paintings.
Her world is filled with unique uses of collage and interpretations of this mixed media medium, leaving everyone with the thought – I could do something I’ve never done before.
It was a joy to watch the Queen of Recycling share her unique methods and thought processes. Thank you Beth Butterfield, truly a Jewell.
