About This Installation

Twinning represents one of my favorite subjects, birds!!! One of the anticipated sounds after a long hibernation season, the sound of the Sandhills cranes. These majestic birds return to Michigan as one of the many signs of Spring. I love seeing them in pairs up all summer. They are mates for life, which can end up being two decades or more. These magical bird are here from Spring through Fall, indicating changes in the season. As an avid garden I associate their arrival with planting, their departure with harvest. As someone who lives season to season, these birds are such an important indication, of a passing season. I hope my installation brings you as much joy as the first warm day of Spring.

Christine Beals is a lifelong resident of the Lansing area. She has spent a large part of her working career, restoring antiques. This has helped her develop an eye for craftsmanship, particularly in the realm of all things vintage. Her art is born out of an interest in artistic and spiritual expression, with a desire to join color and space. Her hope is that her creations are seen as both calming and inspiring. Her art is self Making art is a very special part of my life. Art is an excellent way for me to be creative, to stay busy, and to share my gift with others. Art started as a hobby, to create handmade gifts for family and friends. People were so drawn to the artwork that I began to take commissions, and I'm thankful that it has grown into so much more than just a hobby. There are so many things that inspire my art. Geometric patterns are known to draw in the mind. The dimensions can be calming and yet, complex, at the same time. Nature is another wonderful inspiration. Birds, flowers, and fauna are some of things that give meaning to my artistic ideas. Choosing colors can be inspired by moods, nature, or something randomly sparkly and beautiful. All of these things factor into the final creation.
